Description of training:

“Safety in sport means environments on and off the field, offices, and boardrooms are all physically safe, while being inclusive, psychologically and culturally safe. To contribute to a positive culture, we can all improve our communication skills, and also feel empowered to do something when conflict arises.  

We all have a responsibility to creating a safe environment, but often we don’t know what to do when faced with a situation that may compromise our own safety. Bystander intervention gives individuals tools to intervene the next time they witness harmful behaviour in the sports community. The training will equip you with the five strategies for intervention so you leave feeling more prepared to successfully and safely intervene.

When we intervene, we don’t just minimize the impact on the person being harmed. We also start to shift the culture towards that prioritizes respectful sport experiences that are safe for everyone. Alone we can’t shift the culture — but together — our actions matter.”
