SafeSport

A pathway to safer sport

Awareness. Prevention. Action.

Safe Sport is an environment where individuals can have a healthy, supportive, and respectful sport experience, free from all forms of harassment and abuse. The Universal Code of Conduct to Prevent and Address Maltreatment in Sport calls for all sporting environments to be free from physical, sexual and psychological abuse.

Awareness

Manitoba Horse Council believes in being proactive to ensure horse riding and equestrian sport is safe and enjoyable for all participants. The first step toward creating a safer sport environment is equipping our communities with the knowledge of acceptable and unacceptable behaviour in sport. When we can recognize, we can react.

Prevention

Sport organizations have a responsibility and obligation to protect the safety and physical and mental well-being of every individual involved in its community. Sport organizations need to take any situation involving misconduct or maltreatment very seriously.

Safe Sport is a free eLearning module designed to give coaches, officials, parents and organizers the knowledge and skills to create safe and inclusive sport environments by recognizing, addressing, and preventing maltreatment in sport. The training can be accessed by creating a free account at The Locker or by visiting the Safe Sport website

Action

In Manitoba, it is everyone’s legal obligation to report suspected child abuse. If, in your honest judgment, you believe that a child may not be safe, you are legally required to report it. The experts at the Safe Sport Line can help you make that report. 

If you or someone you know is experiencing abuse, harassment, bullying or hazing in sport, and you need someone to talk to, call the safe sport line: 1-833-656-SAFE (7233).
