What we collect from our members
We may collect the following information:
In addition, Age Group Coaches collect records of the attendance of players at weekly training sessions. These records are held personally by them (not within the membership records held through the website) and are not shared more widely within WSBA. However Coaches will share summary information such as “Player x has attended regularly or Player Y has not attended training sufficiently” with other Coaches, when making team selections for County fixtures, as regular training is a condition of selection.
