As an administrator, one of your roles is to make your members aware of the problem of bullying by taking a public position on the topic. One of the ways to achieve this is to distribute clips via the social media. You can also send the clips specifically to the persons concerned by them. You could also take advantage of the opportunity to remind your members that there is no place for bullying in your club and attach the complaint procedure in case of bullying. The clips can also be presented as part of a recognition gala or a coaches meeting.
Still for your awareness role. These posters reiterate the themes discussed in the clips. You can have them printed and display them in appropriate places. The Bystander poster could be placed in the players’ locker room and Parental model close to the stands. They can also be shared on social media or electronic messages as a reminder of the appropriate behaviours to adopt.
These tools are meant for your members to counter bullying. Discussing is meant for parents and the other three for coaches. In this case, your role is to make sure that your members know and use them. Social media is a good option to reach this goal, but face to face is the most efficient (coaches or parents meeting). These tools are free, but only on request. Contact us to obtain an electronic version.
