Fair Play Code Workshops

GippSport is hosting 4 FREE workshops for Sporting Clubs regarding the Victorian Government’s new Fair Play Code. The Fair Play Code is a code of conduct for sport and recreation in Victoria, which outlines the standards of behaviour expected for everyone involved in sport and recreation. Victoria’s sporting associations are required to adhere to and enforce the new Fair Play Code to receive funding from Sport and Recreation Victoria.

The Fair Play Code sends a loud and clear message – that bad behaviour, violence, cheating and intimidation has no place in sport and recreation in our state. With 3.9 million participants, 16,000 sports clubs, 9,500 community sports facilities and 580,000 volunteers – Victorians love their sport. Through the Fair Play Code, the Victorian Government is making sure that individuals, clubs, leagues and associations know what to do if they encounter bad behaviour both on and off the sporting field. At the heart of the code are the five core values that will lead to fair play for all –  integrity – respect – responsibility – fairness – safety. TheFair Play Code builds on the Victorian Government’s2010 Victorian Code of Conduct for Community Sportwhich aimed to encourage appropriate standards of behaviour to enable every Victorian to be involved in sport that is safe, welcoming and inclusive. The Fair Play Code also features new guidance on the responsibilities of those involved in sport and recreation, dealing with potential breaches and where to seek further information.  

Fair Play Code workshops will be conducted at Inverloch & Sale (Monday 18th November) and Morwell & Bairnsdale (Monday 25th November) and will outline the standards of behaviour expected for everyone involved in sport and recreation, and cover:

– The five principles that make up the Fair Play Code
– Some of the key elements involved in each principle
– How to identify gaps in your Club’s policies and procedures; and
– Where you can get more information, and support, to build a fairer and stronger Club
