Protecting Children in Sport: Developing Safe and Inclusive Sport Organizations (PCSOS)



The importance of child protection programs in sports organizations transcends mere legal obligation; they serve as shields safeguarding the safety, health, and well-being of young athletes. By providing a secure sports environment, these programs foster the physical and mental development of children, offering them a space to learn the values, discipline, and teamwork of sports while maximizing their potential. Child protection programs enable sports organizations to fulfill their social responsibilities towards the community, building trust and prestige among parents and society at large. These programs play a crucial role in preventing child abuse and neglect, ensuring that sports have a positive and transformative impact on the life of every child. Therefore, child protection programs in sports are essential not only for managing risks and meeting legal requirements but also for harnessing the integrative and educational power of sports to the fullest
