Commitment to Safe Sport

Canadian Sport Help Line: 1-888-83SPORT(77678) or abuse-free-sport.ca/

 

Freestyle BC embraces our responsibility to create, foster, and preserve a safe sport setting for all individuals. We believe a safe sport environment prioritizes the welfare, safety, and rights of every participant at all times.

Creating a culture where everyone can thrive is a shared responsibility. Safe Sport was developed to help anyone involved in sport — whether you have direct contact with athletes or work in the background — to promote physical, psychological, social, and spiritual health, in line with the Universal Code of Conduct to Prevent and Address Maltreatment in Sport.

SafeSport is a critical element of understanding our responsibility and obligations in an environment free from maltreatment. Together, we can make Freestyle Skiing in BC a safe place for everyone.

The Canadian Sport Help Line is available to provide you with advice, guidance and resources on how to proceed or intervene appropriately in the circumstances. Additional support services available to you to prevent and report maltreatment in sport can be found at SafeSport.coach.ca/Toolbox
