** IMPORTANT NOTE **

We are delighted to announce that Sport Integrity Australia will be partnering with Play by the Rules to house their online training modules on the Sport Integrity Australia e-learning hub.

As of June 17th, the Sport Integrity Australia LMS (Learning Management System) will be co-branded with Play by the Rules and will integrate the following courses:

  • Revised Child Protection Online Course
  • Harassment and Discrimination Online Course
  • Member Protection Information Office Course
  • Complaint Handling Training
  • Inclusive Coaching
  • Creating an LGBTI + Inclusive Club
  • All Mini-Courses

Hosting the Play by the Rules online training modules on the Sport Integrity Australia e-learning hub creates a single destination for all sporting codes and administration staff to access the appropriate educational materials and training on sport integrity, and will vastly improve the user experience in the process.

Bringing together the courses was a key recommendation from the Wood Review, which proposed a single identifiable education and outreach platform be established to develop and coordinate education, training and outreach courses.

The Play by the Rules online courses will be available on our website on 17th June 2021 and from that date the Play by the Rules website will redirect to the Sport Integrity Australia e-learning hub: elearning.sportintegrity.gov.au

To facilitate this change, the links to Play by the Rules courses will be down for maintenance from Thursday 10th June until Wednesday 16th June 2021.


Welcome to the Let Kids be Kids mini-course. This course is part of the Let Kids be Kids campaign to address poor sideline behaviour at junior sport. There are a suite of resources available to support sports clubs and associations tackle poor behaviour at kids sport.

What will you learn from this mini-course?

At the conclusion of this course you will be able to:

  • Identify the motivations for kids' participation in sport
  • Identify what poor behaviour at kids' sport is
  • Take actions that reduce instances of poor adult behaviour at kids' sport
  • Take actions that discover and incorporate the views of children and young people when it comes to their sport experience

The issue of poor behaviour at kids' sport can be quite a complex one. Nobody knows how common poor behaviour is! But, many people have witnessed it or seen it in the media. Maybe you've even been part of it? Watch this introduction from Paul Kennedy, the ABC journalist, who appears throughout the course. 

No sport is immune from poor adult behaviour. Poor behaviour can have a serious impact on kids enjoyment of sport and their future participation. This free mini-course is a step you can take to help you understand and address poor behaviour. You will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the course.
