Lacrosse Victoria is committed to supporting our member clubs to create a safe and inclusive environment for all children in lacrosse throughout Victoria.
The Victorian Government has introduced compulsory minimum standards that apply to all organisations that provide services for children. These standards help to protect children from all forms of abuse. The child safe standards form part of the Victorian Government’s response to the Betrayal of Trust Inquiry.
These Standards apply to sporting organisations from 1 January 2017.
