Swifts score a goal for Child Safe Sports

NSW Swifts Head Coach Rob Wright, along with players Caitlin Thwaites, Taylah Davies and Paige Hadley feature in a new video to keep sport safe for kids in NSW.

Developed by the NSW Office of the Children’s Guardian the video is part of a Child Safe Sports campaign to raise community awareness about managing risks to children in sports environments.

The campaign also aims to assist the sport and recreation sector with their phase in to the new Working With Children Check (WWCC) from the 1st April 2015.

Education and information about ways to provide a child safe sporting environment for sporting clubs, squads and associations is a key feature of the campaign.

The initiative also features support from Sydney FC Head Coach Graham Arnold and Captain Alex Brosque, fellow A-League football players and Futboltec coaches Glen Trifiro and Jason Trifiro, professional triathlete Lisa Marangon, Bondi Rescue lifeguard and triathlete Andrew Reid, parathlete Gabrielle Vassallo and a group of young North Bondi Surf Club nippers.
