Integrity Framework Policies

Netball Tasmania is committed to treating all people with respect, dignity and fairness. These values, along with the basic right of all netball members to participate in an environment that is enjoyable, safe and healthy, has resulted in Netball Australia developing specific objectives to create a safer and more tolerant sporting environment, which have been adopted by Netball Tasmania.
Netball is not immune to acts of discrimination, harassment and abuse and in fact shares the common features of most sporting environments where close physical and emotional relationships can develop and inappropriate or unlawful behavior can take place.
Netball Tasmania is both ethically and legally responsible to prevent discrimination and more specifically harassment from occurring in netball.
The adoption of Netball Australia’s Integrity Framework Policies reflects Netball Tasmania’s commitment to serving and protecting its members and participants throughout all levels of the sport. These Policies are components of the overall strategy and the implementation and enforcement of these Policies requires ongoing commitment from all levels of the sport.
Through working together, the netball community can prevent discrimination and harassment and create a safe and supportive environment for all participants at all levels. This link will take you to the current Integrity Framework Policies.
