Child protection

MLAC adhere’s to Little Athletics Australia National Child Protection Policy and has introduced further measures within the club, to ensure the safety of our athletes welfare. This includes a Safety Officer to monitor the running of all events on the field and to ensure athletes are safe at all times.

MLAC has also introduced a mandatory online Child Protection course for all coaches and committee members to complete prior to the start of season. We encourage all volunteers to take the free online course to raise awareness of your rights and responsibilities under child protection laws.
