In SafeSport environments, athletes and their parents give feedback and are involved in decision making. Consider appointing athlete representatives to provide feedback on behalf of athletes and creating Board positions for athletes. Surveys are another great way to collect feedback. You can create a free Survey Monkey account and use these surveys.
- Athlete survey for after camps and competition trips
- End-of-season club survey on SafeSport and ethical behaviour for athletes and parents
It’s important that the Board of Directors can comfortably discuss feedback about coach behaviour. If your coach normally attends Board meetings, you might reserve some time at each meeting without the coach present. Likewise, it is important that the coach has opportunities to share their feedback and seek help if needed.
