Fair Play Code 2018

  • Fair Play Code 2018

The new Fair Play Code outlines the standards of behaviour expected for everyone involved in sport and recreation in Victoria.
The Victorian Government committed to refreshing the state’s guidelines, the Victorian Code of Conduct for Community Sport under the Victorian integrity in sport action plan 2017-2018. The Code has not been updated since 2010.
The Fair Play Code incorporates the original aim of encouraging appropriate standards of behaviour to enable every Victorian to be involved in sport and recreation that is safe, welcoming and inclusive. It also includes new integrity, respect, responsibility, fairness and safety guiding principles as well as guidance on responsibilities, breaches and seeking further information.
Victorian sport and recreation organisations should apply the standards of the Fair Play Code from 1 July 2018. They are encouraged to incorporate the Fair Play Code into their code of conduct, member protection policy, constitution or other governance documents.
State sporting associations and recreation bodies, sport and recreation associations, leagues or clubs in Victoria must demonstrate adherence to, and enforcement of the Fair Play Code, to be eligible for existing and future funding from Sport and Recreation Victoria.
It is vital that everyone involved in sport and recreation in Victoria is committed to the Fair Play Code standards, to help maintain the integrity of sport and recreation for the general good of the Victorian community.
