There is no room for bullying, abuse, harassment or discrimination in sport.
The Government of Saskatchewan along with Sask Sport Inc., launched the second phase of a joint marketing campaign to ensure a healthy, safe and respectful environment for all participants in amateur sport.
This campaign is aimed at building awareness of the resources available to athletes, coaches and parents in addressing bullying, abuse, harassment and discrimination in sport.
The Respect Resource Line is a major tool of the initiative. The service is confidential and anonymous and it provides information from expert support staff, resources and referrals by phone, text or email.
Sask Sport provides additional resources, such as the Respect in Sport online training program for coaches and activity leaders to ensure more coaches are trained in current safe sport best practices.
Sask Sport is recognized as a leader across Canada for their dispute resolution services and tools.
The Respect in Sport as well as the Respect in School courses were created by the Respect Group, co-founded by Sheldon Kennedy, former NHL’er and abuse survivor.
