Welcome to the first edition of the Technical Newsletter for Commissaires, Instructors and Coaches.

This newsletter has been designed to provide relevant information on changes happening in the sport of Mountain Biking.

Should you have a particular query, please make contact with us and we will endeavour to source the information you are seeking.

Changes to the Code of Conduct and Child Safe Framework Code of Behaviour

Mountain Bike Australia (MTBA) is committed to providing a safe, fair and inclusive environment for everyone involved in the organisation and in the sport. This includes providing everyone involved in the organisation and in the sport with a positive and enriching sporting environment that promotes their participation and development in the sport and ensures that they feel and are safe.

Accordingly, MTBA has adopted these codes to assist with defining what is appropriate (and inappropriate) conduct and to ensure that its personnel strive for the highest possible standards with respect to safeguarding children and young people from abuse.

As part of our commitment to observing these codes commissaires, volunteers and MTBA accredited coaches, instructors and presenters are required to be aware of these changes and agree to these when they renew their accreditation.
