Canadian Soccer Player Safety Guide


Canada Soccer believes that every individual involved in soccer deserves the opportunity to participate safely. Children, in particular, have a right to participate in sport in a safe and enjoyable environment. The Canada Soccer Guide to Safety (the Guide), as an element of the Canada Soccer Club Licensing Program, presents information, best practices and principles, and guidance to support safe environments and participation.

The Guide, linked here, is divided into sections, designed to cover all elements of safety both on and off the field of play, including Codes of Conduct, Child Protection, the Responsible, Coaching Movement, Anti-Doping, Injury and Return to Play, Facility and Equipment Safety, and Psychological Safety.

In addition, it provides resources to support key stakeholders; Coaches and Program Leaders, Parents, and Children, as well as templates, tools, and samples for organizations, to create safe environments.
