The Canberra Cavalry baseball club has cut ties with a human rights group linked to the Church of Scientology, after information of its affiliation with the religion was not disclosed to the club.

Youth for Human Rights is an international non-profit organisation that purports to educate young people about human rights issues, but its funding was primarily supplied by the International Association of Scientologists.

This information was not disclosed to Canberra Cavalry when the organisation's Australian arm attended Cavalry baseball games and handed out pamphlets between 2013 and 2014.
