Safe Sport Training Now Required

Volleyball Canada is requiring that all individuals involved with the sport across the country take the new safe sport training module, available via the Coaching Association of Canada web site.
 
As of April 1, 2020, anyone associated with a Sport Canada-funded organization must be trained on conduct to prevent and address maltreatment. This includes coaches, referees, parents of youth athletes, high performance staff and contractors, officials; and all administrative staff and volunteers whether they may have direct contact with athletes or not. 
 
"We encourage everyone involved with volleyball in Canada to take advantage of this time while facilities are closed to complete this important training, and help our sport be safer and stronger when we are able to return to play," said Volleyball Canada CEO and President Mark Eckert.

The safe sport module is a free, 90-minute eLearning module that gives all participants the tools to recognize, address, and prevent maltreatment in sport. The module aligns with the principles of the Universal Code of Conduct to Prevent and Address Maltreatment in Sport and meets Sport Canada requirements for Safe Sport education.

To take the training, you must create an account in “The Locker”, even if you are not a coach (it’s free!)  We suggest saving screen shot of final slide when completed for your records.
 
Other online resources (mainly for coaches) that can be completed from home include the following (please note fees may be required).
