The reality is, many coaches take on more responsibility than they ever thought possible. Sometimes that means dealing with difficult, delicate and sometimes ethical or legal situations that they did not sign up for.
When faced with a situation and you are simply not sure where to turn for guidance or support, we strongly encourage you to use the Red Cross Respect in Sport Support Line. Last year, the Support Line provided expert guidance to well over 300 enquiries made by Manitoba coaches, parents, sport volunteers and administrators.
For any suspected incidents of abuse, harassment, bullying and hazing, call this number immediately. A trained Red Cross staff person will be available to assist with questions or concerns you may have.
