About Me

Sport is a wonderful opportunity to obtain health benefits. Moreover, participation in sports should solely result in positive experiences. However, in the last year, it has become (even) more apparent that this is not the reality for everyone. Transgressive behaviours are occurring on a daily base and positive experiences are taken away from athletes. To turn this around, individuals need to be protected from any opportunity bringing their (physical, sexual and/or psychological) safety at risk by establishing a safe sports climate through safeguarding. Therefore, the vision and mission of my scientific contribution is to establish safeguarding in the DNA of all levels of the sports community. Together, by striving to realise a safe sports climate, positive experiences in sports will become the norm for everyone.
