End Abuse and Harassment in Sport 

We call on all sport and physical activity organizations to commit now to take proactive action that will prevent harassment and abuse in all its forms.

To demonstrate our commitment to active prevention, CAAWS signed the Responsible Coaching Movement pledge and encourages all
organizations to do the same.

Celebrating organizations that are expanding equity and inclusion for women and girls in sport,
this is the CAAWS Spotlight. This month we recognize...
Ringette Canada's Female Coach on the Bench Policy looks to increase the amount of female coaches within their organization. This policy requires a certified female coach to be associated with all Ringette Canada teams. An accompanying Action Plan provides a blueprint for the sport organizations to develop and retain female coaches.

The Coaches Association of Ontario launched their #SheCanCoach campaign, encouraging the recruitment of female coaches and changing the conversation on who can coach.
 
We salute your ground breaking efforts!

Webinar: Preventing Dropout From Sport
Girls continue to drop out of sport at higher rates than boys. Research led by Dr. Catherine Sabiston at the University of Toronto discovered that weight commentary and body talk from parents, peers, coaches, teammates, and opponents all contributed to poor sport experiences which ultimately led to drop-out. This webinar will discuss the research findings and provide recommendations for coaches and other sport leaders to help reduce body image challenges. 
 
When: Thursday, March 1st, 2018
Time: 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM ET
Presenter: Dr. Catherine Sabiston (Canada Research Chair in Physical Activity and Mental Health, University of Toronto)
