Omega Netball Club Commitment to Safeguarding Children & Young People

Child Safety 

The Omega Netball Club recognises the importance of child safety in our sport and has adopted the Netball Victoria commitment to Child Safety as follows:

Every person in the netball community has a responsibility to understand their role in ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people in our care. Netball Victoria is committed to promoting and protecting the rights of children and preventing abuse from occurring by fostering a culture where children feel safe and empowered. We also seek to ensure the cultural safety of First Nations children, children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds and children with a disability.

Further information on Netball Victoria’s commitment to Child Safety can be located here on the Netball Victoria website.
