We need your help! We want the BC Lacrosse Association to have the most people pledge to support the Province of BC's Erase Bullying in Sport campaign!
Please visit this website www.viasport.ca/erasebullying and "TAKE THE PLEDGE", and ask your family, friends, members, etc. - whoever you know - to take the pledge along with you! It takes less than a minute to do.
The #ERASEbullying in Sport campaign officially launched today and will run for the month leading up to Pink Shirt Day on February 22, 2017.
Here's what the Pledge says:
We, the Province of British Columbia and B.C. sport leaders, believe that: Sport can provide British Columbians of all ages, abilities and backgrounds with life-long opportunities to enjoy physical, social and emotional health benefits.
A sport environment that is positive, respectful, engaging and accessible for all participants encourages individuals to join and stay in sport throughout their lives. Conversely, a sport environment in which participants are exposed to negative experiences, such as bullying, can be harmful and cause individuals to quit sport.
Bullying is unwelcome or aggressive behaviour that involves a real or perceived power imbalance and can take many forms including physical, verbal, emotional or other types of intimidating or humiliating behaviours. The behaviour is often repeated and can occur on or away from the playing field, court or arena. Children, youth and adults can all be vulnerable to experiences of bullying.
We will: Through the signing of this document, demonstrate our commitment to fostering a positive sport environment with mechanisms in place to effectively prevent and address bullying in sport.
Declaration of Commitment: We call on all those involved in sport - participants, athletes, coaches, parents, caregivers, officials, organizations, partners, volunteers and others - to join us in this commitment and help ensure a safe, welcoming and positive sport culture and environment for all British Columbians of every background, gender, sexual orientation, culture, ethnicity, age, ability and aspiration.
Thanks to all the families in our club - you make this happen: YCS delivered 600 pairs of socks to the homeless in Vancouver on Friday due to Burnaby Lakers order of 600 pairs of custom socks for their Lacrosse Club. 300 pairs went to Directions Youth Services and 300 pairs went to the Union Gospel Mission in Vancouver. Thanks Burnaby Lakers for your custom order and for giving back to your community! When we work together, we can do great things! @Burnabylakers @Directions_FSGV @ugm #buyonegiveone #customsocks #yourcitysports
