PERSES Safe Sports Policy
Singapore Sepaktakraw Federation (PERSES) Safe Sport Commitment
What is safe sports?
According to the International Olympic Council’s Consensus Statement (2016), Safe Sport is defined as an “athletic environment that is respectful, equitable and free from all forms of harassment and abuse”.
Harassment and abuse can be expressed in five forms, occurring in combination or in isolation. It is based on any grounds, including race, religion, colour, creed, ethnic origin, physical, attributes, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, socio-economic status, and athletic ability.
It can happen in person or online. Harassment may be deliberate, unsolicited, or coercive. It often results from the abuse of authority or power by an individual against another.
To report an instance of alleged abuse and/or misconduct that goes against the values of Safe Sport, you may do the following:
1. Call Singapore Sepaktakraw Federation at 6449 8963 and request to speak to our Safeguarding Officer.
3. Alternatively, you may request to meet our Safeguarding Officers personally.
4. You do not have to be a victim to report instances of abuse or misconduct, you could do it as a person who is aware of or have witnessed the incident(s). PERSES will ensure that your identity is kept strictly confidential.
5. Lodge a report at any Police station or via the Police E-Service page. If it is an emergency that requires immediate Police assistance, call 999.
