LSC Safe Sport Chairs Resources
Each LSC has a Safe Sport Chair. The role of the LSC Safe Sport Chair is to serve as an informational resource for the LSC's clubs, coaches, and athletes. The Chair will work to increase awareness of Safe Sport in the LSC by disseminating information, promoting educational opportunities, and serve as a feedback liaison between the local level and headquarters. Safe Sport Chairs come together twice a year for training workshops.

We provide the following model policies for clubs to use in full or to adapt to the club's needs and specific set-up.
