Sport Manitoba has recently revamped the way they address mistreatment and misconduct in sport.
President and CEO Janet McMahon says their Pathway to Safer Sport is a framework of tools, templates, and resources that assist Provincial Sport Organizations and all who participate in sport in Manitoba to create a safer sport system.
One aspect of this framework is the Safe Sport Line, which McMahon elaborates on here.
“We have a Safe Sport Line that people can call and at this point, they can email. A trusted, trained individual will speak to them about their issue might be and either provide some support to them or direct them where it’s best to land, whether it’s a complaint or an appeal or some kind of dispute. It’s just a trusted individual to talk about their situation.”
The Safe Sport Line can be accessed by phone at 1-833-656-SAFE or email at help at safesportline.ca.
