Squash NSW Child Safe Squash Framework 

We want Squash to be a place where children and young people have fun, develop positive relationships and are safe. Everyone in the Squash NSW community has a role to play to creating a culture that allows that to happen, from our sport’s administrators, directors, coaches, parents, officials, clubs and centre operators. 

The Child Safe Framework has been developed to meet the National Principles for Child Safe Organisations as recommended by the Royal Commission into Child Sex Abuse. The National Principles The Standards will come into effect in July 2020. All organisation will need to adhere to The Standards legislation. Non compliance could have dire consequences for clubs and centre operators if a child is harmed in your facility. We recommend that you adopt the Squash NSW Child Safe Squash Framework or develop your own policies to ensure you are compliant.  

To further assist affiliated clubs and centre in 2020 we will make available the Child Safe Portal. The portal will provide your club or centre with the tools and resources to manage your Child Protection obligations. The system will allow for you to have WWCC information stored for reference and give you the ability to track if your members or staff are compliant with any required training.
