Child Safety

Our commitment

The Ivanhoe Knight Basketball Club is committed to ensuring a safe environment for our young players, coaches and referees.

We support Basketball Victoria’s Child Safe Standards and have appointed a Child Welfare Officer responsible for matters concerning child safety and abuse.


Child Welfare Officer

The Ivanhoe Knights Child Welfare Officer is currently Rebecca Bolton. She can be contacted by sending an email to

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 Club’s Child Welfare Officer will be required to report 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 plays a role in the organisation and act accordingly.


Policies and procedures

In 2019 we adopted a comprehensive Child Safe Policy detailing:

  • our commitment to child safety and inclusion
  • our procedures for the recruitment of coaches staff and volunteers, and
  • our complaints reporting procedures.

The policy is available in the Policies section of this website:

It includes a complaint form.
