Safe Sport: Action


CONFLICT RESOLUTION 

Softball BC believes everyone has the right to enjoy the sport despite their level of participation. As such, Softball BC encourages all individuals to communicate openly, collaboratively, and use problem solving techniques to resolve differences in opinion. Resolving a conflict at an early stage may prevent a situation from escalating and resulting in a formal complaint.
