Integrity Partners and Community Programs
The ASC works in collaboration with key stakeholders in the area of integrity in sport. Key partners, policies and programs include:
- Australian Sports Anti-doping Authority (ASADA)
- National Integrity of Sport Unit (NISU)
- Play by the Rules (PBTR)
- Good Sports
- Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission (VEOHRC) - Transgender people and sport
- Anti-homophobia (Framework), Fair Go, Sport, Come out to Play)
- National Anti-Racism Strategy (Racism. It stops with me.)
Play by the Rules, Good Sports, Fair Go Sport and the National Anti Racism Strategy are all initiatives funded by the Australian Government to make sport safe, fair and inclusive.
Play by the Rules is all about promoting and reinforcing the messages of safety, fairness and inclusion on and off the sporting field. It provides a diverse range of information, resources, tools and free online training to increase the capacity and capability of administrators, coaches, officials, players and spectators. These tools assist them in preventing and dealing with discrimination, harassment and child safety issues in sport.
The Australian Drug Foundations Good Sports program provides free support to sporting clubs to change their culture and reduce high risk drinking. Under the program, clubs will focus more on young people, families and sport participation and less on drinking alcohol.
Fair Go Sport! enables sporting clubs and associations to explore issues of diversity and inclusion is a positive way; to show case what it was doing well and identify new opportunities for action.
The National Anti-Racism Strategy and campaign (Racism. It Stops with Me) aims to promote a clear understanding in the community of what racism is, and how it can be prevented and reduced. Many sports stars and sporting organisations have already signed up to support the campaign, including Play by the Rules and the Australian Sports Commission.
