Using Your Voice as a Pathway to Success
In this session, athletes will receive tools to enable and empower their voice. Athletes will receive key takeaways to speak up for what they need to participate and have the opportunity to listen to a panel of aspiring and accomplished athletes. Bring your thoughts, ideas, and personal experiences to share with and pose questions to the group. This interactive educational session is powered by Disabled Sports USA and is geared towards athletes.
Changing the Game for Athletes: Trends, Reports, and the Ending of Abuse in Sport
Approximately 45 million U.S. children and adolescents participate in organized sports each year, and between 40-50% disclosed they’ve experienced some form of abuse throughout their athletic career. Until now, there hasn’t been a dedicated resource to ensure every athlete is safe, supported and strengthened through their sport career. This session will provide an introduction to the U.S. Center for SafeSport by providing an overview of our function, both in education and training, as well as in responding and resolving sexual abuse/misconduct allegations. This educational session is powered by the U.S. Center for SafeSport and is geared towards athletes, coaches and parents.
