Bocce Federation of Australia Member Protection Policy
Version 8 – June, 2015
Updated and adopted by the Bocce Federation of Australia Board – 10th September, 2015
The Bocce Federation of Australia has developed this policy to reinforce its commitment to provide an environment safe for children and to ensure that the core values, good reputation and positive and respectful behaviour and attitude of the BFA that enable athletes and participants of all ages, abilities and ethnic background to enjoy the sport of bocce free from harassment, discrimination and abuse, are maintained.
The policy provides a code of conduct that forms the basis of appropriate and ethical conduct that everyone associated with the sport should abide by. All States and Territory affiliated Federations and Associations will also be required to adopt this policy as a means of taking a preventative approach to addressing inappropriate behaviour within our sport.
As National President of the Bocce Federation of Australia, I give my commitment that the BFA will work with everyone associated with the BFA to assist us to comply with the policy and promote safe and responsible behaviour within the sport of bocce.
President – Bocce Federation of Australia
