Please find attached the August edition of the Play by the Rules e-Bulletin.
The London Olympics were a stunning spectacular and also threw up a range of issues which have relevance for grassroots sport. Take for example the prolific use of Twitter at these Games and their potential to distract and bring some athletes unstuck. Or the debate on inclusion sparked by South Africa's 'blade runner', Oscar Pistorius. See links to two articles we have put together on these contemporary issues.
This month's issue also congratulates several WA agencies on winning a prestigious child safety award; and provides details on the new work, health and safety laws for volunteers; new catchy videos on sport, respect and inclusion; and the BackMeUp cyber-bullying competition.
There is also the usual conference and webinar updates, workshop and forum information, and grant recipient details from NT and SA.
