Basketball NSW is extremely committed to the on-going safety of all of its members – in particular its junior members. As a result, BNSW is asking for any inappropriate conduct including any physical abuse, verbal abuse, emotional abuse, or sexual misconduct to be reported to the NSW Police, FACS, the Office of the Children’s Guardian or Basketball NSW.
If any parents, children or other participants have any information regarding this type of alleged conduct, please email all relevant information and supporting material to [email protected].
Each report will be carefully examined in a confidential manner, and action will be taken where appropriate or necessary in order to protect all our members.
Basketball NSW, Chief Executive Officer, Maria Nordstrom stressed the importance of ensuring a safe environment for all our members across the state at all times.
“Basketball New South Wales is fully committed to providing a child safe environment with the primary focus on the child,” Nordstrom said.
“We work closely with a number of services including Sports Chaplaincy Australia who assist us with on the ground crisis and first responder counselling support for any event or incident, and we would like to thank them for their ongoing support and dedication.”
If anyone within the BNSW community feels victimised, isolated, depressed or contemplating self-harm for any reason, please speak up and contact our Member Protection officers Debbie Keirs & David Watts, or visit Headspace.
Please stay safe and well in these difficult times.
