We believe that parents play a crucial role in their children's success on and off the field. That's why we've put together a collection of resources to help parents understand the importance of sport and soccer. We hope these resources will empower you to make informed decisions about your child's athletic journey.
Abuse Free Sport
Abuse-Free Sport is an independent program that is part of a growing national movement to rid Canadian sport of all forms of harassment, discrimination and abuse.
We aim to prevent maltreatment at all levels of sport across Canada through education, training and research.
We are also responsible for investigating reported violations of the Universal Code of Conduct to Prevent and Address Maltreatment in Sport (UCCMS) and for imposing sanctions against individuals who violate the Code.
Canada Soccer Player Pathway
LTPD is a model of athlete development that parallels what doctors and psychologists have long used to better understand human development: as a series of distinct stages, which takes us from infancy through to adulthood. A person’s abilities, behavious and emotions, as well as their understanding of the world around them, varies from stage to stage.

Respect in Sport
Respect Group was incorporated on April 5th, 2004 by co-founders, Sheldon Kennedy and Wayne McNeil, to pursue their common passion: the prevention of bullying, abuse, harassment and discrimination (BAHD). Respect Group is made up of a team of 30 talented individuals whose passion is to create a global culture of Respect. Our co-founders have been involved in pursuing this mission for the past 25 years.
We’re in the business of fixing the things that need to be fixed. We operate in the space between where we are and where we should be. We’re starting with sport, but our vision is broad. We believe that social enterprise has value that can be captured and expanded. Led by Diana Matheson, Project 8 has started with sport by developing Canada’s first women’s professional soccer league.
Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport
The CCES is an independent, national, not-for-profit, multi-sport organization with a vision of fair, safe, accessible, and inclusive sport for everyone. We believe the fundamental purpose of sport can and should be to make a positive contribution to Canadian society and that ethical sport is the best way to achieve that.
We believe that by intentionally activating True Sport, advocating for ethical sport, and protecting the integrity of sport, we will fulfill our mission and achieve our vision
