Club Best Practices & Toolkit

The best practices were crafted using scientifically based guidance developed by and for other youth-serving communities, such as youth sports, summer camps, afterschool programs, and childcare.

They are categorized into seven areas of focus:

  1. People/Human Resource Practices
  2. Athlete Wellness, Injury Prevention, and Injury Response
  3. Communication
  4. Diversity and Inclusion
  5. Environmental Safety
  6. Prevention of Abuse and Misconduct
  7. Reporting and Responding
