The investigation by CBC on abuse in sport is concerning for all of us in the sport community.
The CAC is
working with the Provincial/Territorial Coaching Representatives (PTCR)
network which includes the 13 jurisdictions to partner in hosting a series of
provincial/territorial summits in March in order to continue to build a
harmonized safe sport system. A national summit is planned for
April. This work is being done to further our individual and collective
work in safe sport whether it be through the Responsible Coaching Movement or
otherwise. CAC is also facilitating this work to support the national
task force on safe sport and the ministers’ desire to impact sport in Canada. The Safe Sport Summit on PEI will be held on March 29. Details will be announced shortly.
The following are linked to the stories that were published by CBC.
