PAWA

PRESIDENTS WELCOME

Welcome to the first edition of chukka chat for 2021. Thank you to those people who attended the AGM, either in person or virtually, and had input into the issues that affect all members throughout the year. We have not raised the PAWA component of player fees this year, as we have maintained a healthy financial position. Thank you  to those who have taken on roles and responsibilities at all levels of polocrosse for the year ahead. I look forward to a more stable year, and invite initiatives, feedback and general communication in order to keep improving polocrosse for all our members.

Pip Crook.

Each club should have a nominated MPIO. Once online component is complete please email your certificate to eo@pawa.asn.au. This is soon going to be part of legislation in sport as they conclude the inquest in to child protection.

(MPIOs) play an important and positive role in providing a safe, fair and inclusive environment. An MPIO is a source of information about a person’s rights, responsibilities and options when managing an issue or complaint. They can also provide information and advice to sport administrators and complaint handlers regarding the Member Protection Policy of that sport.
 
The Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries invites members of the sport and recreation industry to register for the Member Protection Information Officer course. The course is specifically designed for people who wish to be a Member Protection Information Officer in their sport and recreation organisations and clubs. Please note priority will be given to representatives from State Sporting Associations.
 
The MPIO course comprises of two stages: an online prerequisite and then a face-to-face workshop. State sport and recreation associations and clubs are invited to nominate persons from within their organisation to attend.
 
Prior to attending the face-to-face workshop. The online component takes approximately 4 hours to complete and covers:
• The MPIO role
• Complaint resolution procedures
• Member protection and the law
• Child protection
• Harassment and discrimination
• Ethical and practical considerations.
