As a parent who attends games, practice sessions or club functions, you are both a role model and a responsible adult when it comes to all children you encounter within the club or sporting organisation environment.
treat all children respectfully, and within the child protection laws of Australia (free from any form of abuse).
act in accordance with your club and sport’s code of conduct on how to interact with children of all ages (up to 18 years).
be aware of your club or organisation’s policies and reporting processes and act accordingly if you witness or suspect any situations that may potentially lead to, or may constitute, child abuse.
be a positive influence in the creation of a child safe environment at your club or sporting organisation.
“Parents just want players to enjoy being part of a sport or a team, and to lookout for each other like any good team would do.”
