Safe Sport SQS


What is a safe sport environment?

Wetaskiwin Soccer Club recognizes the incredible experiences and opportunities that sport offers to children. These experiences are integral to both community development and enhanced child development. Safe environments for children foster positive experiences and healthy relationships between athletes and coaches. In order to create a safe environment, there must be clearly established guidelines and commonly understood expectations for professional boundaries between adults and athletes, and a sense of safety for those who need to bring forward any concerns of misconduct towards children.

Wetaskiwin Soccer Club complies with all of CASA and ASA guidelines to create a safe and welcoming environment for our athletes, as referenced in the following policies:
