Preventive measures


To ensure the security of young athletes who practice a sport, each sports organization should possess preventive measures or policies against violence in the sports community. Ask about such measures against violence in the sports community and get the name of the person in charge of the security and application of that policy within your organization. If such measures do not exist, suggest that your organization put preventive measures in place.
