SAFEGUARDING AND SAFE SPORT
Our mission is to make athlete well-being a priority for Obstacle athletes worldwide. All athletes deserve to participate in Obstacle Sports free from bullying, hazing, sexual misconduct or any form of emotional or physical abuse.
World Obstacle follows the guidelines of the International Olympic Committee, the International Safeguards for Children in Sport working group and the joint Pro Safe Sport programme of the Council of Europe and the European Union related to creating and implementing policies to safeguard athletes and children from harassment and abuse in sport. We encourage all athletes, coaches, staff, volunteers, and entourages to complete the IOC Safe Sport education modules and quiz.
SAFE SPORT CODE
World Obstacle subscribes to Safe Sport Codes developed for athletes by national and international organisations. We are developing a culture of intolerance of sexual abuse and harassment in obstacle sports under the guidance of the World Obstacle Safe Sport Committee.
EDUCATION & OUTREACH
We believe education and awareness are critical to creating safe and respectful sporting environments, free of abuse and harassment. World Obstacle follows best practices, policies and programs consistent with guidance from leading organizations. See below for IOC training modules on harassment and abuse in sport.
