VICSPORT launches Child Safe Online Education program
The Victorian sporting community, in particular grassroots clubs, have a new free and interactive way to understand and comply with the 11 Victorian Child Safe Standards following the launch of Vicsport’s Child Safe Online Education Program.
Developed with support from Sport and Recreation Victoria (SRV) and Lander & Rogers, the education program is powered by etrainu’s Learning Management System.
Featuring one module per Standard, users are able to delve into the content while working through practical, sport-based strategies and scenarios to help with their understanding. Breakdowns of compliance indicators, policies and procedures are also included while the modules feature the ability to save as you go, meaning you can work through the program at your own pace.
The free and interactive program is designed to guide sport administrators, volunteers, coaches and/or officials through the Standards.

The Australian Sports Injury Data Dictionary has been developed to provide guidelines for injury data collection and classification for the prevention and control of injury in sport and recreation. The Dictionary has been written to assist sporting and recreation organisations, researchers, sports medicine professionals, first-aiders and individual clubs collect information on sports injury. The sporting organisation or researcher may customise a data collection form to suit their needs, but a sporting club may choose to use the sport-specific. The Dictionary is prescriptive in the use of data categories and options within those categories. This is necessary if the advantages of comparability and consistency are to be gained. Users are, of course, free to design forms and data systems that meet their needs, and to extend the items and classification in the Dictionary.
Sports Medicine Australia has also produced a range sport-specific fact sheets that discusses ways to prevent injury, advice for taking care of junior players and how to deal with common injuries to create a healthier and more active community.
Sports Medicine Australia has produced an injury fact sheet series highlighting prevention and management for 12 of the most common sporting injuries .

Child Safety Message for Council’s Community Spaces and EventsShare on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link
In close conjunction with Council’s Child Safe Work Group, we have developed new signs to ensure our events and community spaces are safe, respectful and inclusive for our younger community members.
As users of our shared community spaces, we ask for your support in printing these signs and placing them in child friendly areas around your facility.
Manningham Council will not tolerate any abusive behaviour at any of our events or community spaces which makes another person feel unsafe and or disrespected and we hope you support us in spreading this message to our community.
