Student athletes with disabilities do not represent a higher level of liability risk or risk management concern than student athletes without disabilities. With proper planning and contingencies, student athletes with disabilities can seamlessly integrate into the dynamics of an interscholastic team. Individualized assessments can help asses or identify any potential safety concerns.
Ensuring athlete safety is a priority. Through education, resources, and training, members of the sport community can recognize, reduce, and respond to misconduct in sport.
SafeSport offers training for coaches, parents and athletes about misconduct in sport and the measures you can take to enforce policies and protect athletes.
