Welcome to Safeguarding in Sport

The most important element in sport is the people involved. The success of sport relies on putting people – their safety, wellbeing, and welfare – at the centre of what sport does. 

Safeguarding in Sport is a series of three online courses for everyone involved in sport. They have been designed to increase your understanding of safeguarding, why it is important, and how you can develop safeguarding in your own sport. Safeguarding is about everyone, and it applies to everyone, whatever your role in sport.

The content for these courses was originally developed by FIFA and has been revised to suit a more general sport audience. We would like to thank FIFA for all their support.

This series of courses has been developed with support from the Australian Government (Team Up), the Commonwealth Games Federation, the International Ice Hockey Federation, the International Platform on Sport and Development (sportanddev), the International Skating Union, the International Ski and Snowboard Federation, the International Tennis Federation, World Athletics, World Rugby, and World Netball.
