Confronting Sexual Abuse and Harassment by Sport Coaches: A Need for a National Effort

Tennis Lesson

The world of sports has been riddled with sexual abuse and harassment of young athletes by their powerful and publicly respected coaches (respected for producing performance results) for many decades, across all sports, regardless of sex. While there is no consistently collected data on the prevalence of these transgressions, there is reason to believe that news reports and limited data from national sport governing bodies represent the proverbial “tip of the iceberg”.

March 10th, 2014 - New York City - Fundraiser Dinner

Nocello - 7-10pm 

COME JOIN US 

Safe4Athlete is having a Fundraiser/Dinner in New York City at Nocello,  Fine Italian Cuisine. 

Join us for a night of some good food and good company, while learning about the mission of Safe4Athletes and how you can help give a voice to Athletes everywhere.  

Safe4Athletes mission is to provide a safe and positive environment for every athlete, free of abuse, bullying and harassment.  We need your support in giving every athlete a voice.  Often Athletes will sit in silence rather than sacrifice their career.  Safe4Athletes has a program that addresses the coach/athlete power dynamic. We need help spreading our free program and resources to those that needed it.  

Our program is growing and we need help supporting the demand to make sports safe4athletes across the country.  We have seen success with the Safe4Athletes program with programs that have taken a leadership role addressing abuse in sports. We need aid and support from others to breakdown the coach/athlete power dynamic through implementing the Safe4Athletes in sports programs everywhere. We have seen success at every level of sports, whether it be collegiate, open amateur sports clubs and high school sports.  

While the resources for every sports program are free from the Safe4Athletes website, we offer assistance with issues and help victims with obtaining resources, such as therapists and legal assistance.  All funds go towards making sports Safe4Athletes.   

Come join us for a night of Food, Fun and Friends (New and Old)

  • Have 2 Minutes? Take the Safe4Athletes Survey to help Make Sports Safe4Athletes
    Written by Katherine Starr

    A few minutes of your time could be the difference between an athlete being silent about their abuse or having a voice to speak up. 

    We are asking you to help make sports Safe4Athletes by taking a few minutes of your time to participate in our survey. By COMPLETING our survey we can learn a little bit more about each sport at every level.  

    There is very little current data to truly understand the type of abuse that has transpired in sports for decades.  We know that it's there and know that each sport has different unique characteristics of the type of abuse (Sexual, verbal, physical and emotional). Help us change that by completing the survery. We want to hear from anyone that has competed for a single season to having committed to over 10,000 in pursuit of excellence in your sport. The more knowledge we can gain the bigger the impact. Help us change what is broken and preserve what makes sports great.  

    The survey can be completed by either the athlete or an athlete parent of a minor competitor. The minor competitor can complete the survey as well as Athlete Self. All responses are anonymous. 

    Please share this survey with your networks as the more the "past and present" athletes at all levels of sport participate the louder our collective voices become.

    Click here to take the SURVEY we will look forward to sharing our findings in the coming months. (Stay Tuned)
