Education is, without a doubt, the cornerstone of curbing abuse and harassment in sport.
The Abuse-Free Sport program includes education and prevention initiatives that are beneficial and available to all, no matter the sport, the level or the role of the individual.
Our approach is collaborative; we aim to facilitate consistent messaging across the sport system, and where relevant, align education and training to the Universal Code of Conduct to Prevent and Address Maltreatment in Sport (UCCMS).
To accomplish this, we have developed the following programs and initiatives:
National accreditation standards allow for access to quality education and training programs that disseminate consistent safe sport messaging.
A searchable database of accredited safe sport programs and trainings available to the public.
Investment in safe sport research improves the development of effective policies, processes and practices that enhance the sport experience for everyone.
