Safe Sport

Wrestling Canada Lutte (WCL) believes that everyone has the right to enjoy the sport at whatever level they participate. Athletes, coaches, officials, and volunteers have the right to participate in a safe and inclusive training and competitive environment that is free of abuse, harassment, or maltreatment. We are committed to making our culture better and are putting in place inclusive processes to help support our commitment to safe sport.

Canadian Sport Helpline

The Canadian Sport Helpline is here to provide you with advice, guidance and resources on how to proceed / intervene appropriately in the circumstances.

Independent Third Party

As part of our commitment to Safe Sport, WCL has enlisted the professional services of ITP Sport as our independent third party service provider.

Earlier this year ITP Sport partnered with Whistleblower Security Inc. to provide clients with a secure and independent reporting intake and case management system.

WCL first partnered with Respect Group in 2017 as part of its broader commitment to Safe Sport and adopted mandated “Respect” training for staff and members of the Board of Directors. Respect Group was co-founded by former NHLer Sheldon Kennedy in 2004, and partnered with the Canadian Red Cross to create a best-in-class e-learning curriculum with the aim of preventing bullying, abuse, harassment and discrimination (BAHD).

WCL is now providing access to training and education (on a user-pay basis) for staff, coaches, medical personnel and the BOD through “Respect in Sport for Activity Leaders” and for parents through “Respect in Sport for Parents” modules.
