B.C. initiative to #ERASEBULLYING in #sport
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 BC sports organizations surveyed know of athletes who have dropped out of sports because of bullying.
That’s why 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.

On February 22, 2017, provincial sport organizations will celebrate the Province’s first Declaration of Commitment to erase bullying in sport across B.C.
