The following policies have been adopted by the Board.
Diversity and Inclusion Policy
Social inclusion is about making sure everyone is able to participate as valued, respected and contributing members of society. It is also about the acceptance and equal treatment of members of the wider community regardless of their gender, gender identity, sexuality, age, disability, religious or cultural background, or other attributes that may lead to people feeling excluded or isolated. Yarra Valley Hockey Club fully supports Hockey Victoria's position on the inclusion of all people and adopts the Hockey Victoria Inclusion Policy.

Yarra Valley Hockey Club endorses the Hockey Australia Member Protection Policy. YVHC members agree to be governed by this policy upon registration each season. Details of the Club's current Member Protection Information Officers (MPIO) can be found on the Contact Us page.
