Sport Integrity & Managing Complaints

Softball Australia and Softball ACT have adopted Sports Integrity Australia’s (SIA) National Integrity Framework which takes a proactive approach to mitigate integrity threats to sports and provide a safe, fair, and healthy environment for participants at all levels of the sport. In conjunction with the new policies we have also adopted a new independent complaint-handling process run by Sports Integrity Australia. This means that all members can raise any integrity concerns directly to Sports Integrity Australia.

The suite of policies and further information can be found on Softball Australia’s Sports Integrity web page - Sport Integrity Australia - Softball Australia
