Training for Bystander Intervention in Sport
Training on practical and safe techniques to stand up for others, presented by ViaSport in partnership with “Right To Be”
BC Soccer recognizes the collective responsibility we all share in addressing maltreatment within our community. Often, individuals hesitate to act when witnessing such incidents. Bystander intervention equips individuals with the necessary tools to intervene effectively without jeopardizing their safety.
Intervening not only reduces trauma for the person being harmed but also contributes to dismantling the culture that tolerates maltreatment. While individually we may struggle to shift this culture, our collective actions hold significant influence.
During the training, the objective is to provide participants with the tools to effectively intervene when witnessing harmful behaviour within the sports community. Using the proven 5Ds methodology, encompassing five strategies for intervention will equip individuals with the information needed to be an effective bystander. Through practice, you will leave the training feeling more prepared to intervene successfully and safely.
