Safe Sport Monday for April - consent
“Safe Sport Monday” is a monthly initiative started by USA Swimming to help cultivate a healthy team culture through the Safe Sport program. A new scenario is presented monthly for coaches to spend a few minutes reviewing with their athletes.
April’s Safe Sport Monday is 4/02, and the Scenario and discussion guide is attached.
April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and Child Abuse Prevention Month. Our scenario for April is about consent. We talk a lot about boundaries in Safe Sport, and consent is just asking about someone’s boundaries
These are some additional resources:
- YouTube video explaining consent in kid-friendly terms: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h3nhM9UlJjc (A great video to share!)
- Article for coaches and volunteers: https://www.acacamps.org/resource-library/camping-magazine/i-respect-consent-education-assault-prevention
Share the scenario with your team coaches for use at a practice. and club contacts, and let me know if you have questions.
Thank you for your continued support and do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns about Safe Sport in Minnesota/USA Swimming!
