Toolkits FOR EVERYONE

Policies

Fostering a sport environment that is safe for all participants, at all levels of competition, is everyone’s responsibility. A safe sport environment is one that does not jeopardize an athlete’s mental, physical, emotional or sexual health and well-being but instead promotes strength, resilience and self-confidence.

Athletes, particularly those competing at high levels, may be vulnerable to attacks on their health and well-being from people they know – trainers and other athletes, for example – as well as from people they do not know – media and strangers through social media. It is essential that all participants are protected from harm through a combination of education and prevention initiatives, comprehensive and actionable policies and protocols, and compassionate and just crisis management.
