We know it’s a challenging topic, covering physical safety, maltreatment, abuse and more. Allison as a tireless advocate for safer sport in Canada will guide us through these important issues. Changes are taking place from the national level all the way down to grassroots sport. Coaches have an opportunity to make positive change in their critical role as leaders in sport.
