Coaches Training
Coaches play an important role in fostering a positive youth sports experience where children and youth can thrive and grow as athletes. As a coach you have a responsibility to establish a culture of respect and ensure the safety of athletes. This training focuses on protecting our young athletes from child sexual abuse and exploitation. It is imperative that coaches are equipped not only with the skills to recognize and report abuse after it occurs, but it is even more important that you have the skills to create environments that are safe for everyone. 

This training takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. You will need to register for a free CONNECT account, after which point you will have access to the no-cost training. A certificate of completion is available upon finishing the course.
