building a safe sport environment together
Rule of Two
The goal of the Rule of Two is to ensure all interactions and communications are open, observable and justifiable. Its purpose is to protect participants (especially minors) and coaches in potentially vulnerable situations by ensuring more than one adult is present. There may be exceptions for emergency situations.
Safe Sport 101
CAO & Hydro One have launched the Safe Sport 101 Playbook - a free 8-part e-learning series for coaches that focuses on what they can do to create safe AND fun sport experiences for everyone! At less than 15 minutes per module, the Playbook was designed with a coach's busy schedule in mind.
