The Cheerleading Junkie Podcast
“Gyms are terrified that by even doing this type of training [Child Protection Training], they’re somehow implicating themselves in child abuse. They’re scared people will think ‘if you need training then you obviously have a problem’ and in fact it’s the complete opposite! Gyms that value the safety and welfare of their athletes train their staff and work intentionally on their culture”
I had a great conversation a few weeks back with The Cheerleading Junkie’s Jill Markley about Safeguarding and Child Protection in our sport, and the fear for coaches in how to best address training with staff.
