Download Your Free #Day1 Toolkit For Sports Teams
People participate in sports for many reasons: Health, life skills, connections with others, and even simply a love for their sport. Nobody joins a team to be bullied, yet it is far too common in sports.
According to Childhelp:
- 40-50% of athletes have experienced anything from mild harassment to severe abuse in their sport of choice;
- 4% of young athletes reported that a coach had hit, kicked, or slapped them;
- 8% of coaches acknowledged encouraging athletes to hurt opponents, 33% yelled at players for making mistakes, and 20% made fun of a team member with limited skills.
These statistics are sobering and show a need for coaches, teams, and athletes everywhere to join together and prevent bullying!
Our #Day1 sports toolkit specifically addresses the issues teams face. It includes simple, research-based steps that can promote good sportsmanship and bring out the Upstander in all of us.
At any level of sport, athletes should have fun while doing their best, which doesn’t happen when they are bullied. Preventing bullying from #Day1 is not only good for athletes, but also for the whole team.
