Sport'Aide withdraws from the 2nd International Safe Sport Conference

 

Dear participants of the Safe Sport International conference

A year ago, Sport'Aide and Safe Sport International (SSI) agreed to postpone the 2nd conference (Team up to eliminate violence in sport) due to the COVID-19 pandemic. One year later, in view of the current situation with this pandemic, the uncertainty as well as the many unknowns generated by it and, in doing so, the many direct and indirect consequences apprehended on the preparation and holding of this conference, the board of directors of Sport'Aide made the very difficult decision to withdraw from the organization of this event. Please email Iris@podiumconfernces.com to request a refund of your registration by May 31, 2021. After that date no refund will be processed.

Despite this cancellation, Sport'Aide and Safe Sport International would like to thank you for your interest in the event we have planned for you. Convinced that you will understand the situation, we would like to tell you that we are extremely sorry for the inconvenience caused.

That said, although Sport'Aide is withdrawing from the presentation of the 2nd SSI Conference, please be aware that Safe Sport International has pursued its mission of promoting and fostering healthy and safe sporting environments with many projects, a refocusing on athletes' co-creating safeguarding in sport and have hosted an international conference (March 11-12 2021). They are opening the competition for SSI International Conference for 2023.

In this regard, Safe Sport International will continue to explore options to continue working on its three priority areas: research, education and training and athlete / youth voice, using remote / virtual technology. Unless otherwise specified, Safe Sport International will continue to provide updates and opportunities to engage in the protection of children and adults in sport.

Thank you for your understanding.
