Safe Sports Space Campaign

What is a Safe Sports Space?

  • A sports space where all athletes, coaches, physical education students and teachers, and spectators and families are safe and treated with respect, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression
  • A place such as a gym, pool, track, playing field, locker room, weight room, training room, coaches’ or teachers’ offices, or any other sports space in a school
  • A place where name-calling, bullying or harassment of any kind is not tolerated
  • A place where everyone can enjoy sports and physical education activities

How to Let Everyone Know that Your School’s Sport Spaces Are Safe

  • Put up Safe Sports Space stickers in the gym, weight room, locker room, coaches’/teachers’ offices, classrooms or any other sports space in your school
  • Let everyone—teachers and students in physical education classes and coaches and athletes on sports teams—who uses that space know what it means to use Safe Sport Space.
  • Post Safe Sport Space Rules and review them with physical education classes and sports teams.
  • Remind anyone who forgets that your school sports spaces are safe so everyone can enjoy the game.
