Coaches play a vital role in ensuring their athletes are safe both on and off the field of play. Reducing and preventing acts of maltreatment is vital to enhancing a safer sporting environment that fosters positive growth and personal development for all participants.

Take the Safe Sport Training

Creating a culture where everyone can thrive is a shared responsibility. The Safe Sport Training module developed by the Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) will help anyone involved in sport identify and prevent situations of maltreatment.

Together, we can make sport safe for everyone.
