Safe Sport Launches Online Anti-Bullying Training

USA Swimming and its Safe Sport program are committed to fostering a fun, healthy, and safe environment for all of its members. To help increase awareness and reduce the risk of abuse, Safe Sport has launched a new online course to help parents and coaches identify and address bullying behaviors.

The online program is free for USA Swimming non-athlete members. It can be accessed at here.
Lessons include:

•How to define bullying
•Why bullying is a problem
•What the different types of bullying are
•How bullying happens
•How to prevent an athlete from being bullied
•How to manage conflict between the individuals involved

Bullying behaviors lead to a negative team environment if not handled properly and quickly. Unfortunately, they can be alarmingly normal in youth sports settings.
