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.

The Province and viaSport are asking sport organizations throughout the province to sign a Declaration of Commitment, and for individuals to take the pledge to Erase Bullying in Sport.

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.

Join us on Pink Shirt Day, Feb. 22, 2017, as we stand together to Erase Bullying throughout British Columbia, including in sport.



If you are having thoughts of suicide or of hurting yourself or others, please reach out immediately for help. Call 9-1-1 (or your local police or authority, if you do not have 9-1-1) or go to your nearest hospital emergency room.

If you are being bullied, feeling alone or just need to talk to someone who will listen, please reach out to a trained volunteer or professional:

Thank you for stopping by to check out the ERASE Bullying online reporting tool. This tool is accessible through computers and smart phones, and will allow students, parents or other witnesses to report bullying or other threatening behaviour, anytime and anywhere.

The online reporting tool has just been developed and is in the final stages of testing.

If you need help, please reach out to someone you trust, like a parent, friend or teacher. Or, you can reach out to someone who doesn’t know you for support. There is a list of youth-oriented support lines and websites on this site just for you.
