Child Abuse Prevention
Child abuse prevention is paramount. To me it always has been and I hope it always will be. This should be something we all have our heart and minds set on but it should be particularly prominent in a coach's mind and heart.
If any coach is not doing everything they can to set standards and prevent such abuse then at the very least they need some re-education.
This video is one of the best and most comprehensive that I have seen on Child Abuse prevention and its application to every sporting activity including judo.
It goes for an hour and it directed to a USA audience. For those of us not living in the USA Take special note everything except the emergency number (000 in Australia) that you call in as relevant to us.
