|STAND TOGETHER TO #ERASEBULLYING IN SPORT |
A sport environment in which participants - athletes, coaches,
volunteers, and officials - are exposed to negative experiences
such as bullying can be harmful and cause individuals to quit.
55% of BC sports organizations surveyed know of athletes who
have dropped out of #sport because of bullying.
That’s why viaSport and the Government of B.C. have launched
a new #ERASEbullying initiative for every provincial and local
sport organization, and all B.C. citizens. On February 22, 2017,
provincial sport organizations will celebrate the Province’s first
Declaration of Commitment to erase bullying in sport across B.C.
