Child safe information
The Aberfeldie Jets Basketball Club (AJBC) is committed to ensuring a safe environment for our young players, coaches and referees. We endorse Basketball Victoria's Child Safe Standards.
All members and club representatives are expected to discuss any concerns that they may have about the welfare of a child IMMEDIATELY with the nominated Child Welfare Officer.
The Child Welfare Officer will ensure that the concerns/incidents reported to them remain confidential and that the identity of the person reporting the concern/incident is not revealed.
The Club’s Child Welfare Officer will be required to report all the incidents noted by them to the appropriate authority at Basketball Victoria who will then ascertain whether or not the person/s involved in the incident play a role in the organisation and act accordingly.
You can find more information about relevant policies and standards at the links below:
For any child safety concerns, please contact the Aberfeldie Jets Basketball Club Child Welfare Officer
Should you feel that the issue extends beyond the club, please contact Albert, Keilor Basketball Association's Welfare Officer on 0439 329 264 or via email here
