GAC finds it important that every member enjoys her or his sport. Every member has the right to feel confident regardless of someone’s sportive capacities or background. Despite the good intentions it is possible that someone can experience a problem that he or she wants to discuss in confidence. For example (sexual) intimidation, aggression, discrimination or suspicions of (child)abuse. This includes all kinds of behavior that are not accepted in a good and stimulating sporting climate.

Confidant persons
GAC has appointed Helene Heckman and Fred Verkerk as confidants. You can contact them for questions, a conversation or a notification of unacceptable behavior within GAC.
You can reach them at and at 06-40484917 (Helene) and 06-26492295 (Fred). They are open for support and advise, neutral and will take further steps only in accordance with the reporter. They have duty of confidentiality.

Members and parents of minors respect each other’s borders. It can occur that the behavior that one person finds acceptable is not acceptable for another. When you can not handle such a situation, you can do different things. Call the help of a team member, trainer or the GAC club committee. When necessary, a confidant can refer you to another institution. In the case of extreme forms of unacceptable behavior, GAC can apply formal measures.

A confidant acts only in response of a direct request of a clubmember with his or her accordance. All steps which the confidant takes must be in approval with the reporter. The confidant guarantees the confidentiality and secrecy about the reason of consultation.

The confidant has a task to maintain and improve the ways of behavior which support the feelings of safety and reliability for individual members. We hope together with all members to create a safe club culture at GAC.
