The Member Protection Policy and the Rugby Australia Code of Conduct are both in place to provide a safe, fair and inclusive Rugby environment.
Rugby has and must continue to be a sport where players, officials, volunteers, supporters and administrators have the right and freedom to participate regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race or religion and without fear of exclusion. There is no place for any form of discrimination in our game and our actions and words both on and off the field must reflect this. (Rugby Australia)
Member Protection Policy
Rugby Australia aims to ensure all participants are treated with respect and dignity and that they are provided with a safe and enjoyable environment in which to play or to otherwise be involved in rugby. The Rugby Australia Member Protection Policy outlines their commitment to eliminate discrimination, harassment, harm or risk of harm.
The Rugby Australia Code of Conduct provides a set of standards for everyone involved in Rugby to ensure it is played in a safe, fair and inclusive environment. It also outlines the procedures for reporting, complaint handling and investigations of alleged breaches.
Report a Concern
Rugby Australia’s policies and procedures aim to ensure the game is run effectively, fairly and safely and that all participants behave in a positive and appropriate manner.Their list of policies can be accessed via the Integrity Section on their website.
As we each have a duty to protect those involved in the game, it is important to report someone who has acted against one or more of their policies, so appropriate action can be taken if necessary. If you experience harassment or discrimination within a rugby environment, you should speak to the NSW MPIO or our Club's MPC. If you do not feel comfortable doing so you can report your concern through the Rugby AU National Online Incident Form via the button below.
