TRAINING: Right to Be’s Bystander Intervention in Sport

 

Right to Be’s Bystander Intervention in Sport sessions are coming up, and there are four dates to choose from.

 

The training is a great tool to gain practical skills to prevent harm in your sport. The virtual delivery lasts 1 hour and 30 minutes and NCCP professional development points are available for participants.

 

This opportunity is open to everyone, including officials, coaches, parents, and athletes at club and provincial level!

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.”
