The U.S. Center for SafeSport is providing a new resource called the, “Parent’s Guide to Misconduct in Sport.” This is a free training offering and appropriately titled so as not to confuse it with the mandatory SafeSport modules required for certification.
The Parent’s guide is designed for parents of athletes of all ages. It explains the issues of misconduct in sport and helps parents ensure their children have a positive SafeSport Experience.
