Make the Difference

Recognizing misconduct in sport is critical; implementing the right policies and communicating them to all members of the sport community is the next challenge. While every situation is different, you don’t need to start from scratch.

When everyone - clubs, coaches, staff and parents - understands his/her role, we can work as a team to protect athletes and create the best conditions for sport.

Safer for Everyone

We all have a role to play in creating a healthy setting for sport. SafeSport helps raise awareness about misconduct in sport, promote open dialogue, and provide training and resources. When we work as a team, we can build a game plan to make sport safe―for everyone involved.


When coaches are engaged and proactive, athletes and teams perform at higher levels. The relationship between coach and athlete can have a tremendous impact for all involved. READ MORE


Sport can help you learn how to work hard and make new friends. Practice and competition, as well as winning and losing, can build character and teach valuable lessons. READ MORE


Selecting the right sport and club for your child is about more than athletic development or playing time. Learn about a club’s reputation and its policies to protect all athletes. READ MORE

In addition to info for coaches, athletes, parents and regions, here are other materials that can help any interested person help create healthy settings for all involved in the sport. READ MORE
