Regions and clubs have many responsibilities: strengthen sport, extend opportunities to participate, and instill the values of fair play, respect and hard work. Creating conditions that promote the performance and well being of athletes is a fundamental component of these goals, which require effective policies and monitoring, as well as the collaboration and collective energy of our entire sport community.

SafeSport developed these materials and resources to help organizations create a culture that encourages safety, openness and disclosure. By implementing appropriate policies and procedures, regions and clubs can fulfill their obligations to coaches, athletes and parents. Although every sport and organization is different, this information can serve as a starting point for designing an effective plan.
