Safe Sport Resources

At Temiskaming Thunder, we are dedicated to promoting a safe and positive sports environment for all our athletes, coaches, and volunteers. As part of our commitment to athlete well-being, we adhere to the principles of Safe Sport, as defined by the Coaching Association of Canada.

Safe Sport encompasses a range of policies and practices designed to create a secure and respectful environment, free from abuse, discrimination, harassment, or any form of misconduct. Our coaches and staff undergo thorough background checks and complete mandatory training on creating safe spaces for all participants.

We believe in fostering an atmosphere of trust and open communication, where athletes can voice their concerns without fear of reprisal. Our coaches are not only focused on developing athletic skills but also nurturing the personal growth and mental well-being of our athletes.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding Safe Sport or our commitment to athlete safety, please do not hesitate to reach out to our coaching staff. Together, we can ensure that everyone involved with Temiskaming Thunder can enjoy the game they love in a safe and supportive environment.

On the Temiskaming Thunder website, we have compiled a list of links and references to various internet resources that can serve as valuable tools for athletes, coaches, parents, administrators, and organizations seeking information or support related to sport and mental health. It's important to note that the Temiskaming Thunder organization does not endorse or validate the viewpoints expressed on these external sites, and we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information they provide. However, we strive to provide a comprehensive collection of resources to cater to the diverse needs of our community.
