Child Wellbeing

CYC are committed to the safety and wellbeing of children and young people.

Child wellbeing is at the core of our values and our operations. We have zero tolerance approach to child abuse in any form.

As a club we have adopted and applied Gymnastics Australia’s Child Safeguarding Policy to ensure the safety and protection of our athletes, staff, and families. In addition, our Code of Conduct and supporting policies provide further provision for the protection of participants.

All policies are reviewed regularly to ensure they are of the highest standard. Staff, coaches and committee members support the implementation and monitoring of the policies and code of contact. All staff, coaches and committee members hold a current Working with Children Check and have completed the online Children Protection and “Play by the Rules” courses. All club volunteers are also required to hold a current Working with Children Check.

We acknowledge that a commitment to child safety is more than policies and procedures, it is about actions and behaviours. Our commitment is to create a culture that provides an environment where children feel safe, respected, valued, and encouraged to reach their full potential.
