Confronting Sexual Abuse and Harassment by Sport Coaches: A Need for a National Effort

Tennis Lesson

The world of sports has been riddled with sexual abuse and harassment of young athletes by their powerful and publicly respected coaches (respected for producing performance results) for many decades, across all sports, regardless of sex. While there is no consistently collected data on the prevalence of these transgressions, there is reason to believe that news reports and limited data from national sport governing bodies represent the proverbial “tip of the iceberg”.

March 10th, 2014 - New York City - Fundraiser Dinner

Nocello - 7-10pm 

COME JOIN US 

Safe4Athlete is having a Fundraiser/Dinner in New York City at Nocello,  Fine Italian Cuisine. 

Join us for a night of some good food and good company, while learning about the mission of Safe4Athletes and how you can help give a voice to Athletes everywhere.  

Safe4Athletes mission is to provide a safe and positive environment for every athlete, free of abuse, bullying and harassment.  We need your support in giving every athlete a voice.  Often Athletes will sit in silence rather than sacrifice their career.  Safe4Athletes has a program that addresses the coach/athlete power dynamic. We need help spreading our free program and resources to those that needed it.  

Our program is growing and we need help supporting the demand to make sports safe4athletes across the country.  We have seen success with the Safe4Athletes program with programs that have taken a leadership role addressing abuse in sports. We need aid and support from others to breakdown the coach/athlete power dynamic through implementing the Safe4Athletes in sports programs everywhere. We have seen success at every level of sports, whether it be collegiate, open amateur sports clubs and high school sports.  

While the resources for every sports program are free from the Safe4Athletes website, we offer assistance with issues and help victims with obtaining resources, such as therapists and legal assistance.  All funds go towards making sports Safe4Athletes.

  • Scott Volkers allegations: Royal commission told ex-swimming coach had positive reviews despite blue card rejections
    Written by ANTONETTE COLLINS

    View Orinigal article BY ANTONETTE COLLINS

    Julie Gilbert, Kylie Rogers and Simone Boyce each allege they were abused between the ages of 12 and 14 while swimming in Mr Volkers' training squad in the 1980s and 1990s.

     Mr Volkers was committed to stand trial but charges against him were dropped by the Queensland Director of Public Prosecutions in 2002. 

    The commission is examining the response of Swimming Australia and other sports bodies, as well as prosecutors, in relation to the allegations. 

    It has heard that two applications by Mr Volkers for a blue card - which is needed for working with children - were rejected as he was deemed an unacceptable risk to children.
