CCES to host webinar on newly published discussion paper “Athlete Protection and Maltreatment in Sport”


March 19, 2015 – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) today released a discussion paper entitled “Athlete Protection and Maltreatment in Sport.”

Written by the Sport Law & Strategy Group, the document discusses policies that have been put in place to prevent maltreatment and misconduct in sport and their effectiveness, while identifying gaps and challenges in their administration.   

In conjunction with the release of the document, the CCES will host a free webinar, including a question and answer period with Kevin Lawrie of the Sport Law & Strategy Group, on March 25, 2015 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. (ET).

This discussion paper shines a light on an important topic in sport that requires more attention,” said Paul Melia, President and CEO of the CCES. “We need to take a deeper look at how maltreatment and misconduct in sport are being addressed. The sport community is encouraged to join this conversation so we can improve the sport experience for all who participate.
