Kidpower has been working with Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) since 2011 to develop resources specifically to address the problems of sexual abuse in youth sports by developing recommended policies and procedures, and producing videos that can be used to help educate coaches, parents and youth sports leaders on HOW to keep young people safe from sexual abuse.
“We wish this wasn’t necessary, but we know that sexual abuse in youth sports is a reality.”
— Jim Thompson, PCA Founder and CEO.
