What is this course?

Every child deserves to enjoy their sport. This workshop will raise your awareness of the tell-tale signs of abuse and give you the tools and confidence you need to deal with any issues sensitively, appropriately and effectively should the need ever arise in your coaching career.

This workshop is developed and certified with UK Coaching, NSPCC, and CPSU.
