ASC Safe Sport

The Aboriginal Sport Circle believes that everyone has the right to participate in sport. We should all experience the joy sport provides regardless of the level of ability. In this then, all athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers have the right to participate in a safe and inclusive training and competitive environment that is free of abuse, harassment or discrimination.

The ASC believes that any athletic and sport competition, whether it is an ASC-sanctioned event or not, must have the welfare of everyone at the forefront. A key component of a safe environment is the existence of an independent dispute resolution mechanism where complaints, allegations and breaches of ASC conduct policies can be received and heard.

Independent Third Party for the ASC

The ASC has engaged the services of an Independent Safe Sport Officer who will work with you through the complaints process. We understand how important it is to have options when it comes to reporting issues in a safe and secure way.
