Statement Regarding the Responsible Coaching Movement and Abuse in Sport
Canadian Sport Institute Calgary – Statement Regarding the Responsible Coaching Movement and Abuse in Sport
As a key contributor to Canada’s world-leading Olympic and Paralympic podium performances, the Canadian Sport Institute Calgary (CSI Calgary) is reinforcing its commitment to the Responsible Coaching Movement (RCM), in the wake of recent and continued cases of abuse in the sport sector.
The RCM is a national campaign against abuse in sport coordinated by the Coaching Association of Canada that aims to comprehensively shield Canadian athletes at all levels from psychological, physical, emotional or sexual abuse.
“We acknowledge that there are problems in the sport sector, and it’s regrettable it continues,” says Dale Henwood, President and CEO at CSI Calgary. “At CSI Calgary we understand the need for constant awareness of this issue and the willingness to talk about it. We have taken many steps to implement the tenets of the pledge and continue to work closely with our staff to ensure that we provide a safe, positive environment for athletes and coaches.”
