Child Abuse in Sports
Project CARE (Census of Athlete Rights Experiences) aims to ensure that the rights of child athletes are respected throughout world sport. The project is a collaboration between World Players Association, its affiliates and Loughborough University.
WE BELIEVE THAT PLAYERS ARE PEOPLE FIRST AND ATHLETES SECOND.LIKEWISE, CHILD ATHLETES ARE CHILDREN FIRST, ATHLETES SECOND.
During the months of December 2019 – June 2020 an online questionnaire was shared with both currently active as well as former professional athletes affiliated with World Players in order to understand their childhood experiences in organized sport.
