14. We have three proposals to revise Rule 5

Current Rule 5 from the Club Constitution:

5) Members who are members of another cycling club or clubs who wish to race must comply with the Governing Bodies Racing Regulations and declare in advance the name of the club they will represent. For all racing purposes, members who decide to ride for a club other than Southport CC will be deemed to be members of their chosen club and will not be eligible for prizes or trophies specifically reserved for Southport CC riders. They will not be eligible to set records.

a. Proposal to Amend Rule 5: Proposed by Colin Baldwin, Seconded by Simon Kirwan

Margaret BIGGS, a club member with a disability, is prevented from entering club competitions, due to her membership of Team Bader Cycling, part of the Douglas Bader Foundation, a charity which supports amputees and actively encourages and assists amputees to participate in sport.
Margaret is also co-founder of Team Bader Cycling and a Douglas Bader Foundation Ambassador. By riding as a member of Team Bader, she is unable to enter Southport Cycling Club time trial competitions, due to her coming into conflict
with Rule 5,which states:

See Above

However, to ensure compliance with British Cycling’s stated policy on equality of opportunity for disabled cyclists, the club could make an amendment to Rule 5,to proactively ensure there is no indirect discrimination against disabled members as described below:
BRITISH CYCLING EQUALITY POLICY
BC is fully committed to the principles and active promotion of equality of opportunity.
BC is responsible for ensuring that no member receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of a disability.
Indirect Discrimination:
This occurs by putting a rule or way of doing things that has a worse impact on someone with a disability that someone without one, when this cannot be objectively justified.
Discrimination arising from Disability.
This occurs by treating a disabled person unfavourably because of something connected with their disability when this cannot be justified.
Failing to make Reasonable Adjustment.
This occurs by failing to make reasonable adjustment for disabled people which cannot be justified.

PROPOSAL.
WOULD SOUTHPORT CYCLING CLUB CONSIDER REVISING RULE 5,IN ORDER
TO PERMIT A DISABLED MEMBER ALSO COMPETING FOR A REGISTERED CHARITY TO BE ALLOWED TO ENTER INTO CLUB COMPETITIONS.

CLAUSE.
WHERE A DISABLED CLUB MEMBER WHO RIDES FOR A DISABLED CHARITY REGISTERED WITH A GOVERNING BODY i.e CYCLING TIME TRIALS OR BRITISH CYCLING,ARE TO BE REGARDED AS AN EXCEPTION AND IN THESE CIRCUMSTANCES BE ALLOWED TO COMPETE.
b. Proposed by Peter Scott, Seconded by Wendy Scott

Rule as proposed

5) Members who are members of another cycling club or clubs who wish to race must comply with the Governing Bodies Racing Regulations and declare in advance the name of the club they will represent. For all racing purposes, members who decide to ride for a club other than Southport CC will be deemed to be members of their chosen club and will not be eligible for prizes or trophies specifically reserved for Southport CC riders. They will not be eligible to set records. This rule does not apply if the chosen club is a registered charity.

c. Proposed by Allan Taylor, Seconded by Peter Scott

Rule as Proposed
5) Members who are members of another cycling club or clubs who wish to race must comply with the Governing Bodies Racing Regulations and declare in advance the name of the club they will represent. Members who decide to ride for a club other than Southport CC will be deemed to be members of their chosen club for the purposes of the Governing Bodies. All members will be eligible for prizes or trophies awarded by Southport CC. Members who decide to ride for a club other than Southport CC will not be eligible to set records.

The revised rule would be non-discriminatory and might encourage junior / younger members to retain their membership of SCC while riding for other clubs as they would still be eligible for prizes and trophies.
If there was evidence in the future of riders joining the club to “hoover up” prizes (which is one reason why the rule is there?) we could look at a further revision to counteract that.

15. Proposal re DBS Checks: Proposed by Committee, Seconded by Committee

In light of current concerns in sporting clubs regarding protection of children and vulnerable adults, that all committee members must agree to providing information and completing such forms as are necessary to complete a DBS check or provide a copy of a DBS certificate.
