We are delighted to announce that Sport Integrity Australia will be partnering with Play by the Rules to house their online training modules on the Sport Integrity Australia e-learning hub.

As of June 17th, the Sport Integrity Australia LMS (Learning Management System) will be co-branded with Play by the Rules and will integrate the following courses:

  • Revised Child Protection Online Course
  • Harassment and Discrimination Online Course
  • Member Protection Information Office Course
  • Complaint Handling Training
  • Inclusive Coaching
  • Creating an LGBTI + Inclusive Club
  • All Mini-Courses

Hosting the Play by the Rules online training modules on the Sport Integrity Australia e-learning hub creates a single destination for all sporting codes and administration staff to access the appropriate educational materials and training on sport integrity, and will vastly improve the user experience in the process.

Bringing together the courses was a key recommendation from the Wood Review, which proposed a single identifiable education and outreach platform be established to develop and coordinate education, training and outreach courses.

The Play by the Rules online courses will be available on our website on 17th June 2021 and from that date the Play by the Rules website will redirect to the Sport Integrity Australia e-learning hub: elearning.sportintegrity.gov.au

To facilitate this change, the links to Play by the Rules courses will be down for maintenance from Thursday 10th June until Wednesday 16th June 2021.

The Play by the Rules and Proud 2 Play Creating an LGBTI+ Inclusive Club is a free, interactive online training course suitable for coaches, administrators, officials, players and volunteers. It was developed in partnership with South West Sport and VicHealth. At the conclusion of this course you will be able to:

  • define the LGBTI+ community;
  • identify the benefits of LGBTI+ inclusion for your club;
  • identify and use LGBTI+ inclusive language in your club;
  • identify and address barriers to LGBTI+ inclusion in your club, and 
  • change your club culture to be more inclusive of LGBTI+.

The course is short, user-friendly and features the latest interactive technology, including case studies, practical scenarios and examples, and a quiz. You can save your progress and come back to the course at a later date so it's all at your own pace.
