ASA Safe Sport Position Statement:
ASA believes in promoting a safe environment for our athletes, coaches, officials, and spectators. We believe in treating every person with respect and dignity in an inclusive space. The welfare of everyone involved in soccer is the foremost consideration and in particular, the protection of children in the sport is the responsibility of everyone involved.
The words “Safe Sport” transcend sports injuries, and dangerous equipment or hazardous field conditions. At its core, Safe Sport is about how individuals feel, how they are treated, respected, and valued.
Abuse, although rare, can occur in both overt and subtle ways. Neither is acceptable.
In this section, we will share resources and materials designed to ensure all stakeholders in our ‘beautiful game’ participate in safe and supportive environments.
We’ll also share critical contact information to those who feel they are the victims of abuse and maltreatment or have seen potentially abusive situations within their sporting environment.
