Youth sports is rightly associated with positive experiences. Togetherness, health, improvement of social skills and increased self-esteem are some great examples. However, for many kids there is also another side to it.
There are many opportunities to give children and youth meaningful activities in their free-time. Many opportunities to create places where they can push their own limits, develop and thrive, places that offer friendship and company, safety and security, and, not least, happiness.
Unfortunately, where there is a group of people, there is also a risk that harassment, discrimination and other negative treatment occur. Therefore it is important that sports clubs actively work to prevent bullying. We help your club identify what improvement areas to focus on to succeed with this work. For a sustainable change, our education and support involve everyone at the club and our tools are easy to use and integrate in your daily activities.
Through our partnership with Colorado Amateur Hockey Association (CAHA) we are currently working with youth hockey clubs in Colorado, supporting their work in bullying prevention.
