Why is Safe Sport Important?
The sporting environment is as large as an ocean. It is important to ensure a safe sporting environment for everyone.
Misconduct that involves acts which are sexual, psychological, and physical in nature can threaten the safety of sporting individuals and cause cracks in the sporting environment.
- The safety and well-being of an affected person (AP) would be imperilled. This could lead to detrimental effects on the AP which could even be fatal. Th severity of the situation could be heightened when the AP is a minor or a vulnerable individual.
- Where misconduct is normalized, a culture of tolerance is cultivated.
- If misconduct is managed poorly, it could lead to the discreditation of the AP, unfounded opinions which could cause a negative impact upon the affected parties and lack of trust in the organization, among other things.
- The integrity of sports would be compromised.
The Safe Sport Commission, who maintains a secretariat that is responsible for the administration of the Safe Sport Unified and the Safe Sport Programme*, is the authority of Safe Sport.
