  • when necessary and safe to do so, politely and respectfully remind others of their obligations under the Child Safeguarding Instruments; and
  • report any suspected breaches of the Child Safeguarding Instruments to an official at their affiliated club and / or Basketball ACT so that appropriate action can be taken.

Affiliated Clubs have a legal obligation to report suspected child abuse to the ACT Police and other selected authorities (mandatory reporting).

Australian Consumer Law and Fair Trading

BACT Activities are a recreational activity for the purpose of s 139A of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) (‘the Act’).

Pursuant to s139A of the Act, you exclude Basketball ACT from any liability for rights otherwise available under the Australian Consumer Law (Schedule 2 of the Act) for the following (referred to collectively as ‘the Exclusions’):

  • physical or mental injury of an individual (including the aggravation, acceleration or recurrence of such an injury of the individual);
  • the contraction, aggravation or acceleration of a disease of an individual; or
  • the coming into existence, the aggravation, acceleration or recurrence of any other condition, circumstance, occurrence, activity, form of behaviour, course of conduct or state of affairs in relation to an individual that:
    • is or may be harmful or disadvantageous to the individual or community; or
    • that may result in harm or disadvantage to the individual or community.

To extent required under the Act, the Exclusions do not apply to significant injury suffered by a person that is caused by the reckless conduct of the supplier of the recreational service.

By agreeing to the BACT Terms and Conditions, you acknowledge and agree:

  1. to the Exclusions;
  2. BACT Activities are recreational services for the purposes of the Act;

For the avoidance of doubt, this exclusion does not exclude liability for recklessness as defined by any relevant law.
