Youth Safety

Quality sport enriches the lives of everyone involved, provided that their experiences are positive and they reinforce an environment of respect and safety.

Exposure to negative experiences can be harmful and cause individuals to quit.

Cycling BC’s HopOn program operates in alignment with viaSport’s safesport protocols and ensures all instructors abide by the Responsible Coaches Movement.
