Young people can have a lot of fun, make new friends, pick up new skills, and keep active and healthy by participating in sports. Our kids, our neighbourhoods, and our clubs all gain from this.
All parties involved – from state sporting organisations to leagues and associations, clubs, coaches, and parents – must be committed to developing kid-safe sports. We can all enjoy playing and cheering on the sports we love if we work together to make junior sporting clubs and organisations a safer place for young people to be.
Sporting bodies and associations are well placed to develop and share resources and processes that will create a safer practice at the club level.
Clear guidelines, codes of behaviour, screening practices, and clear lines of reporting are critical.
