Protecting Kids - On and Off the Field

Protecting children is nothing new.  We make sure they wear helmets, knee pads, eat enough before a big game and drink plenty of water.  So why should our safeguards around child sexual abuse be any different?  Learn how you can protect the athletes in your life from sexual abuse.  This includes understanding the prevalence, relevance and severity of the issue and as a mandatory reporter your role and responsibility to “Be Someone” in the life of a child.  Gain helpful strategies to ensure the safety of all your student athletes.
Participants will:
  • Develop an understanding of the prevalence and impact of childhood sexual abuse.
  • Learn how to report any suspicions of child abuse or neglect.
