Athlete Parent safety meeting with PSU Consulting Class
April 23, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
As you know, our number one priority is the safety of our athletes. It is for this reason that we are very excited to announce that our organization will be taking part in a new prevention program made available to us by Dr. Keith Kaufman. Dr. Kaufman is a national safety consultant, a Professor at Portland State University (PSU), and a strong supporter of ASNW.
The SSPA is a proactive prevention program that helps teams identify its safety risks and address them to create an even safer environment for the athletes it serves. We found the SSPA to be very helpful with the first three teams we included in the SSPA last year and we’re looking forward to including your power soccer team in this process.
One of the key strengths of the SSPA is that it includes a 360-degree perspective on safety concerns. With that in mind, we will be asking for the help of our coaches, athletes, and parents to get the most complete picture of the safety risks that exist in our club environment and to position us to effectively reduce these risks.
We ask that all of our coaches, parents, and athletes to commit to being part of this single meeting to help us take advantage of this important opportunity. Your input will help create a stronger picture of our safety needs and lead to better outcomes fostering an even safer environment for our athletes. Thanks in advance for your help and support.
