Protect Athletes From Sexual Abuse: Key Actions For Parents & Coaches

Share This Resource

These materials for youth and high school sports parents and coaches can help prevent sex abuse. These resources were developed through PCA's partnership with Kidpower International, a leading non-profit in teaching personal safety to all ages and abilities and in protecting young people from bullying, violence, and abuse worldwide since 1989. They include support by Green Bay Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy, a PCA National Advisory Board Member.

Murphy said of these resources: “Abuse prevention is critical to providing children a positive, character-building youth sports experience. That’s why the Packers and I support this effort by PCA and its partners. The more we can spread these abuse-prevention resources, the safer our kids will be.”

This document includes key actions for parents and coaches and is accompanied by this video. You’ll learn about common warning signs of sexual abuse as well as what you can do in your role.
