Child Safety

What Are The Childsafe Standards?

Child safety in sport means protecting children from abuse, providing safe, quality experiences and empowering children’s voices.

Basketball Victoria is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people. We support the rights of the child and will act without hesitation to ensure a child safe environment is maintained at all times.

The Victorian Child Safety Standards apply to sporting organisations that operate and provide sporting services to children within Victoria (including National Sporting Organisations). There are several different requirements which make up the standards, and which sports are required to comply.

The standards relate to child protection within our Association and Clubs, and include requirements to have practices, procedures and policies in place. We continue to review our compliance with the standards, as well as focusing on the culture and environment within our association to ensure that it is supportive and protective of children.

Child Safeguarding in Basketball

Basketball Victoria and Bacchus Marsh Basketball Association has zero tolerance to child abuse in any form.

All children and young people have the right to participate in basketball environments where they feel safe, encouraged, and heard.

Below are Basketball Victoria policies and other information that help to inform and guide our committee, members, and volunteers of their Child Safeguarding responsibilities.
