BC Tigers adopts BC Soccers Risk Management best practices and recommendations.

Risk management allows organizations to identify and assess possible sources of harm, and take steps to decrease or prevent it from occurring. It must include evidence of procedures, processes and documents which show an organization’s commitment to maintaining the safety and wellbeing of children and young people.
 
While it is not possible to eliminate all the risks involved in playing, coaching, or administering sport, BC Tigers is committed to reducing the risks associated with soccer in the province.
 
Below is a portion of the Risk Management as it relates to working with youth.

Elements of the BC Soccer Risk Management Program include:

The YOUTHSAFE Program (Employee/Volunteer Screening Procedures)   

BC Handbook for Action on Child Abuse and Neglect 

- Respect in Sport, online Parent Education Course 

Respect in Sport, online Coach/Leader Education Course

Harassment Policy - In the Fall of 2015, the BC Soccer Board of Directors approved amendments to the Conduct, Ethics and Discipline Standards and Policy document, which included updates and directives from Canada Soccer.  A portion of these amendments included adding section 1.7 “Free of Harassment” which resulted in a redundancy with the BC Soccer Harassment Policy.  As a result, in January 2016, the BC Soccer Board of Directors dissolved the BC Soccer Harassment Policy as the handling of harassment is captured in the undated Conduct, Ethics and Discipline Standards and Policy document.

- All Sport Insurance

Participant Waiver, Youth 

Participant Waiver, Adult
