Safe Sport

What is Safe Sport?

Safe Sport is an environment where individuals have a healthy, supportive, and positive sport experience, free from all forms of harassment and abuse, collectively known as maltreatment. CCSAM is committed to fostering and protecting a culture that respects and welcomes all individuals and ensures safe sport principles and policies can thrive in all our clubs and programs.

Club SafeSport Toolkit

Any club administrator can use this online toolkit to improve the safety and culture of their club.

Club SafeSport offers many resources, including the mandatory policy templates.

Beginning with the 2024-2025 membership year, CCSAM and our Member Clubs will adopt Nordiq Canada’s SafeSport Policy Suite. Adopting these policies is a condition of membership to CCSAM and Nordiq Canada.
