Play by the Rules campaign

Sport and active recreation is an essential part of life for all Queenslanders. It is important that clubs use best practice tools to support their communities to participate in a safe, fair and inclusive environment.

The Queensland Government is working closely with the Play by the Rules team to create a safe, fair and inclusive environment for Queensland’s children to participate in sport and active recreation. Play by the Rules resources aim to build the capacity and capability of sport and recreation clubs to prevent and deal with discrimination, harassment and child safety.

To assist clubs to create safe, fair and inclusive environments, Play by the Rules provides access to free resources and online training opportunities. Visit
