Online Training Resources

The Australian Sports Commission has invested heavily in creating education materials to help Clubs manage member protection and other issues. Many of these resources are equally applicable to parents, and will help to reaffirm what parents should expect from the clubs their children are involved with.

The Lions strongly encourages all parents to review and complete so of the on-line training modules relating to Member Protection and Child Protection. The following link will take you to the ASC site, where you can create a login and access training materials.
