BC Sailing has signed the Responsible Coaching Movement pledge!

The Responsible Coaching Movement is an initiative from the Coaching Association of Canada and Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport to prevent abuse in sport.  As a provincial sport organization, we have a responsibility to our member clubs and participants in our programs to provide a safe sport environment.

3 Steps to Responsible Coaching:

  1. Rule of Two
  2. Background Screening
  3. Respect and Ethics Training *current requirement for CANSail instructors and coaches

We are reviewing our policies and resources, and will be supporting our member clubs and coaches in joining us to provide safe and healthy sport opportunities.  We plan to implement these changes over the next few years, and invite questions from our members regarding implementing the 3 Steps.
