As the National Sport Organization for shooting in Canada, the SFC is committed to promoting a safe and welcoming sport environment in which everyone is treated with respect and fairness and can participate. The SFC believes that you, the athlete, coach, official and/or volunteer, have the right to safely practice the sport of shooting and, through a variety of initiatives, has developed programs and ressources to help in your enjoyment of the many disciplines and events.
In collaboration with Respect in Sport Group, the SFC is proud to offer the Respect in Sport for Activity Leaders eLearning module to our membership. The focus of this training is on the importance of acting as role models in a sports leadership area, building a positive sports environment, and educating in the areas of bullying, abuse, harassment, and discrimination (BAHD).
The following training will be eligible for professional development (PD) points that registered coaches are able to use to build towards their coaching certification. If you're interested in collecting PD points from this training please be sure to click "allow" in the section relating to the transfer of data to the NCCP Locker.
The SFC has partnered with an Independent Third Party Officer who is prepared to handle conflict resolution and member complaints, contacted directly by:
The Sport Dispute Resolution Centre of Canada (SDRCC) has implemented the confidential, toll-free, Canadian Sport Helpline for any victims or witnesses of harassment, discrimination, or abuse in sport. The number can be accessed via call or text and will provide you resources, advice and assistance for your situation.
Although the risk of suffering a concussion in the practice of the shooting sports is very low, the Shooting Federation of Canada (SFC) recognizes the severity of short and long-term consequences for those sustaining a concussion and the importance of concussion prevention. The Shooting Federation of Canada has developed the SFC’s Concussion Protocol to help guide the management of athletes who may have a suspected concussion while participating in target shooting sport activities.
The Shooting Federation of Canada has developed the SFC’s Mental Health Strategy in partnership with Sport Pyschologist Susan Cockle.
