Croquet Victoria has launched a new suite of Child Safe resources to help clubs and regions meet the requirements of the Australian and Victorian Child Safe Standards (see the Child Safe Standards.pdf).

 A group of club secretaries and club Child Safe Champions participated in the online launch, led by Michaela Cook of Vicsport, on 28 September


Key points:

  • Croquet Victoria is committed to ensuring that all children who come into contact with croquet have a safe and happy experience, protected from harm
  • Clubs and regions are expected to affirm Croquet Victoria’s Child Safe Declaration and develop a local approach to implementing the Child Safe Standards
  • Clubs and regions need to appoint a Child Safe Champion
  • Clubs are asked to display the Child Safe Code of Conduct which is appended to the Child Safe Policy

 Croquet Victoria’s Child Safe Action Plan is available online at and there are links to the resources mentioned in the Action Plan at
