Respect In Sport With Judo

Respect In Sport With Judo

The Respect in Sport Activity Leader/Coach Program educates youth leaders, coaches, officials and participants (14-years and up) to recognize, understand and respond to issues of bullying, abuse, harassment and discrimination (BAHD). It may be the single most important training your leaders will receive to assist them in creating a safe, healthy and respectful environment for all participants!

As a National sport governing body, it is Judo Canada’s mandate to ensure a safe environment for all judo programs delivered to our customers, most of whom are children and youth. Such a goal cannot be accomplished without co-operation from all provincial/territorial judo associations, judo clubs and Judo Canada members to follow the RESPONSIBLE COACHING MOVEMENT principles, as well as the offered “Respect in sport” online training courses: RESPECT IN SPORT FOR ACTIVITY LEADERSRESPECT IN SPORT FOR PARENTS, and RESPECT IN THE WORKPLACE.

A commitment from all our members to follow these training courses will ensure a higher and more consistent quality of our programs across the country, instill more confidence in parents entrusting their children to leaders of judo programs and consequently give our athletes a better chance to develop in a safe environment and reach a high level of performance.
