A Cultural Shift

Launched on October 24, 2018, Club Respect’s website works to contest disrespectful behaviours by providing the influencers in clubs with practical and strategic tools to navigate difficult issues and situations.

Club Respect is for all clubs, all codes, all levels.

From the volunteer marking the lines on the field or court to the club president; everyone is equipped in helping to embed policies and practices that effectively squeeze out the space for abuse, discrimination and violence.

We know that sport mirrors society.

The sheer number of Australians routinely involved in their local sporting club each week in some way, uniquely positions clubs as the vehicle to lead the change around respect. On and off the field.

Get in touch with the team, and pass it on!

Club Respect was funded by a grant from the William Buckland Foundation, and the Edward Wilson Estate.

Author Nicole Hayes writes about her on-again, off-again relationship with Aussie Rules: "just when I think it’s all over between footy and me, just when I’m ready to file for divorce or a trial separation, something happens so filled with joy, so powerful in what it represents, that I end up falling in love all over again."
