Member Protection Support


Basketball Victoria is committed to the health, safety and well-being of all its members and participants and is dedicated to providing a safe environment for participating in the sport of basketball throughout Victoria.

The positive virtues of involvement in the sport of basketball are well heralded and evidenced by the thousands of young Australians participating in basketball activities and competition across the country each week.

The adoption of the Basketball Victoria Member Protection By-Law reflects Basketball Victoria’s dedication to serving and protecting its members and participants throughout all levels of the sport. However, the adoption of the Member Protection By-Law itself is just the first step in affording our members and participants the protection they deserve.

The successful implementation and enforcement of our Member Protection By-Laws requires the cooperation and commitment of Basketball Victoria members and participants at all levels. The following Member Protection By-Law conveys a strong message to all Basketball Victoria members and participants, and prospective members and participants, that as a sport, we are committed to ensuring the safety of our most valuable asset well into the future.


These by-laws set the obligations for screening persons who work with children and deal with discrimination, harassment and vilification on a number of grounds.
