Dealing with Child to Child Bullying 

Bullying happens when the need for using power to intimidate and harass another person meets the right opportunity to use it!

It is often difficult to clearly understand why someone or a group of people will engage in bullying behaviour but at the heart of it is difference: physical, gender, racial, social, socio-economic, sexuality, disability or even being different in appearance can illicit bullying behaviour.

Gymnastics is NO PLACE For BULLYING.

Integrity in Sport

Between March and the end of May 2015 Play by the Rules joined forces with the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA), the National Integrity of Sport Unit (NISU), the Australian Sports Commission and all state and territory departments of sport and recreation to bring the Safeguarding the Integrity of Sport forums to seven venues across the country. The roadshow came about because of the growing concern and increasing evidence that there are serious threats to the integrity of sport at a grassroots to sub-elite level from issues such as doping, match-fixing and the use of supplements, including image enhancing substances
