Respect in Sport

AthletesCAN and Respect Group are pleased provide Respect in Sport for Activity Leaders training to Canada’s senior national team athletes. This partnership will enable AthletesCAN members to access free education to recognize, understand and respond to issues of bullying, abuse, harassment and discrimination and to assist athletes in supporting a safe, healthy and respectful environment.


The training will be available to senior national team athletes from more than 60 sports under the AthletesCAN umbrella. Eligible athletes must be members to access the training. As mandatory training requirements take effect April 2020, national sport organizations will be able to track program completion through an online portal supported by Respect Group to ensure they are in compliance.

If you’re a senior national team athlete and did not receive an email providing access to the Respect in Sport for Activity Leaders training, please email [email protected].


Athletes will hear from other athletes, coaches, subject matter experts and put their knowledge to the test through an interactive learning platform. The topics covered by the Respect in Sport for Activity Leaders Program include but are not limited to:

  • Power Dynamics
  • Legal Responsibility and “Duty of Care”
  • Hazing
  • Physical Development
  • Preventing Bullying, Abuse, Harassment and Discrimination (BAHD)
  • Mental Health Outcomes Due to BAHD Behaviours
  • Concussion and Injury Management
  • Positive Emotions
