Online Child Safe Webinars

Gymnastics Victoria was pleased to hold our first free Child Safe Webinar on Wednesday April 8 2020. 

The topic of the webinar was General Training for Child Abuse and Child Safety in Gymnastics. 

This online training session was recorded and can be found below.

The training session is for anyone working or volunteering in a gymnastics club. The content is similar to what was covered in the Gymnastics Australia Child Safe Online course in 2019. Gymnastics Victoria recommends that you do at least one face to face (or online session like this) every year as well as the online course by Gymnastics Australia.  

This training session covered important topics including;  

- The Rights of the Child 

- Why does child abuse matter in gymnastics? 

- Facts and Stats about Child Abuse in Australia 

- The Law and Child Safety 

- How to make a report
