Abuse, Harassment, Bullying or Hazing in Sport
Our commitment to ensuring that sport in Manitoba is a safe and welcoming experience for all includes providing coaches, parents and sport organizations with a tremendous line of support. Our toll free sport support line is responded to 365 days of the year.
The reality is, many coaches take on more responsibility than they ever thought possible. Sometimes that means dealing with difficult, delicate and sometimes ethical or legal situations that they are not prepared for. Adults involved with sport (parents, spectators, officials, sport board members) may observe or be told about behaviours that are concerning and want advice or guidance on how to proceed/intervene.
When faced with a situation within sport and you are simply not sure where to turn for guidance or support, we strongly encourage you to use our Support Line.
For any suspected incidents of abuse, harassment, bullying and hazing, call this number immediately. A trained staff person (His name is Bruce from Change of Seasons) with decades of experience in sport related abuse prevention, risk management, dispute resolution and crisis intervention will be available to assist with questions or concerns you may have. There is also an email address connected to the line for those who would prefer this method of contact.
For support, consultation, referral or resources please call Bruce toll free 1-877-737-9875 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
