The U.S. Center for SafeSport is raising awareness and providing tools for parents and coaches to identify and prevent emotional, physical, and sexual abuse in sports through powerful public service announcements.
The Center’s public awareness campaign highlights the important role parents and coaches play in helping to ensure young athletes are safe. The campaign highlights educational resources for parents, coaches, and other adults.
SE2 produced the provocative campaign with Image Brew.
The ads say: “Together we can end abuse in sport.” They urge adults to “Learn to ask the right questions” at EndAbuseInSport.org. There visitors will find online training resources to help coaches and parents serve as watchdogs for the safety of athletes while supporting a culture in which athletes are safe, supported, and strengthened through sports. The campaign provides practical tips like promoting open communication, observing how kids interact at practice, and monitoring their social media activity.
