Introduction

Softball BC recognizes its responsibility to foster environments that ensure positive, healthy and fulfilling experiences.  By prioritizing the welfare, safety, and rights of our members, Softball BC is able to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to address the needs of the softball community in relation to safety in sport. 

 

 

SOFTBALL BC COMMITMENT

Softball BC is committed to practicing Safe Sport and ensuring all participants are provided with safe, welcoming, and accessible sport environments, free from all forms of maltreatment. 

 


 

OPERATIONAL STATEMENT

Softball BC's Safe Sport framework will focus on three key elements: Awareness, Prevention and Action - all of which are strongly supported by governance, policies, and procedures.  The objective of this framework is to ensure all Softball BC members have acess to the resources and support services they need to safely facilitate and participate in softball specific programming and activities. 

SAFE SPORT POLICY SUITE

To ensure policies remain current and continue to align with Sport Canada requirements, Softball BC, in partnership with Sport Law and Strategy Group (SLSG) has conducted an independent review. As a result of this review, Softball BC has adopted an updated suite of Safe Sport policies including the integration of the Universal Code of Conduct to Prevent and Address Maltreatment in Sport (UCCMS).

Softball BC commits itself to reviewing and revising these policies as often as necessary in order to ensure members can participate in a sporting environment that is free from harassment, discrimination and abuse.
