Sport is central to the lives of Australians, woven into the fabric of the nation’s collective identity (Georgakis and Russell 2011). But even in this ‘paradise of sport’ (Cashman 1995) in recent years questions have been raised about the widely held belief of the innate ‘goodness’ of sport. Concerns about child abuse within and beyond sport and about sexism, doping and wider ethical issues have, in recent years, led to legislative and policy changes aimed at improving children’s safety and promoting wellbeing in and beyond sport.
