On February 22, 2017, provincial sport organizations celebrated the Province’s first Declaration of Commitment to erase bullying in sport across B.C. viaSport and the Government of B.C. have launched a new #ERASEbullying initiative for every provincial and local sport organization, and all B.C. citizens.
A sport environment in which participants, athletes, coaches, volunteers, and officials are exposed to negative experiences such as bullying, can be harmful and cause individuals to quit. 55% of B.C. sports organizations surveyed know of athletes who have dropped out of sport because of bullying.
Learn more about this initiative and how you can get involved as an organization or individual at www.viaSport.ca./erasebullying and take the Pledge. Invite your friends and family to sign the Declaration of Commitment and join sport organizations across B.C. in acknowledging that they have a commitment to erase bullying in sport.
