#ERASEbullying in Sport
Stand together to Erase Bullying in Sport
Bullying can happen anywhere: in school, on the playground, in the community and in the sports arena. There is often a fine line between competitive play and bullying. Parents, students, athletes, referees, and even coaches can all be vulnerable.
This year, Pink Shirt Day extends to sport. The Government of British Columbia, in partnership with viaSport, wants participants at every level of sport to know that bullying in any form cannot be tolerated.
Through this, we are promoting a positive and respectful sport environment in B.C. and showing our commitment to ensuring a safe and welcoming sport environment that all British Columbians can enjoy.
The benefit of sport extends beyond the sports field. It creates a life-long enjoyment of physical and social activities that contribute to a healthy lifestyle and to building strong communities.
