Safe Sport

The British Columbia Blind Sports and Recreation Association (BCBSRA) has a fundamental obligation and responsibility to protect the health and well-being of the organization, its members and its participants. BCBSRA takes this responsibility and any situation involving misconduct very seriously. BCBSRA and its Members are collectively committed to enacting and enforcing strong, clear, and consistent policies and processes for addressing misconduct.

We are committed to creating sport environments that are free from all forms of harm: physical, mental, emotional and psychological. BCBSRA’s approach to Safe Sport encompasses injury prevention, concussion management, protection against maltreatment, and mental health.
