Your club’s guide for building a culture of respect

Club Respect is a national harm-prevention program that delivers strong practical guidance for sports clubs to build and maintain a deep culture of respect. Our workshops focus on how to build a culture of respect, determining values, knowing the right actions to take and how to deal with issues.

Thanks to critical initial funding from The William Buckland Foundation and the Edward Wilson Trust, we were able to build our Club Respect website that holds all our knowledge, showing how to develop a culture of respect within your clubs. The website is free and accessible for everyone in sports clubs and community groups.

Building on the information from the website, Club Respect now delivers workshops for individual sports clubs, sports organisations and local government councils around Australia, targeting club committee members, administrators and leaders.

  • Duration: 1.5 – 2 hours
  • Participants: Club committee members and administrators
  • Facilitator: Tarik Bayrakli, Manager – Club Respect
  • Participants: Up to14 people.
  • Format: Workshops are delivered for either 1) an entire club committee or 2) Representatives from multiple-clubs (usually hosted by local governments, sport associations or leagues)
  • Content: Participants will be guided through the “A.W.E.S.O.M.E.” elements of the Club Respect Framework. Known as “The Game Plan”, the framework incorporates a self-rating tool at the end of each section, making it easier for clubs to audit their club culture and identify areas for improvement.
  • Materials: A 24-Page Practical Guide with Action Plan attached will be provided at the workshop. No other materials are required.
