Our mission is to make athlete well-being the centerpiece of our nation’s sports culture. All athletes deserve to participate in sports free from bullying, hazing, sexual misconduct or any form of emotional or physical abuse.
Our vision is that every athlete will be safe, supported, and strengthened through sport.
- Safe: Athletes are protected from emotional, physical, and sexual abuse.
- Supported: Athletes enjoy welcome, respectful environments and diversity is actively embraced.
- Strengthened: Athletes use the skills they’ve learned in sport to contribute to the well-being of their communities. Every athlete thrives, on and off the field of play.

If you are aware of abuse occurring in our club, please report it to a board member. All have been trained how to relay the information to the proper authorities and will keep all information private.
