It’s time to Start to Talk.
Play by the Rules provides information, resources, tools and free online training to increase the capacity and capability of administrators, coaches, officials, players, parents and spectators to assist them in preventing and dealing with discrimination, harassment, child safety, inclusion and integrity issues in sport.
The campaign reminds us that we ask a lot of questions when our kids get involved in sport: What fees need to be paid? How often is training?
One question we can forget to ask is “What does the club have in place to keep my child safe?”
Play by the Rules wants parents to #StartToTalk to clubs and feel confident in knowing what child safety policies are in place and what action is being taken to prevent harm against kids in sport.
There are resources available on their website that provide prompts for parents and carers, and reminders for clubs on how to better support children and young people.
For more information, visit the Start to Talk webpage.
