Integrity Policies

Integrity – Protecting Touch Football Together

Sport should be a safe and fair place for all participants. At Touch Football, we offer a safe place for people to raise concerns about behaviour they’ve witnessed or experienced in sport as well as find more information if they have an integrity question.


Your safety is our first concern

If you are in Australia and in immediate danger or at risk of harm, call your local law enforcement agency or dial triple zero (000).

What is sport integrity?

Threats to a sport’s integrity can include competition manipulation and sports gambling, doping, the improper use of drugs and medicine and behaviours that impact people’s positive experience of sport, such as discrimination or abuse, including against children.


Integrity in sport means that participants, officials, supporters, and fans can participate in and enjoy sport, confident in the knowledge that they are part of a safe, fair and inclusive environment.


All of our members and participants have an obligation to protect and maintain the integrity of touch football, as well as the health and wellbeing of everyone involved.


We work closely with Sport Integrity Australia, the national coordination agency for sport integrity threats. For more information about Sport Integrity Australia visit its website.

How to raise a concern

Everyone from athletes, officials, parents, support personnel, administrators and supporters play a role in protecting the integrity of our sport. Touch Football Australia works with Sport Integrity Australia (SIA) to coordinate and manage complaints and reports. Complaints received will be evaluated and either managed by Touch Football, referred to SIA or an appropriate external agency, or passed back to the complainant with suggested pathways for them to pursue where the complaint is out of scope.


If you see or hear something that doesn’t seem right, say something!
