Child Protection Training

training for sporting organisations

Upwards of 2 million children participate in organised sport annually in Australia. There is strong evidence to support participation in sport leads to better physical and mental health and also improves a child’s sense of social cohesion. Unfortunately, the coach to athlete relationship creates a power imbalance increasing a child or young person’s vulnerability and potentially sexual harm.

Members, coaches, officials and parents have a duty of care to keep our children safe during recreational, elite or professional activities. Regular child protection training is essential to ensure your organisation and members are focused on child safety. Whether this be an annual refresher or part of the induction training, continued professional development in this sector is a service Bravehearts specialise in.
