Our outreach initiatives expand our reach, so even more people learn about making sports safe and accessible for all.

Sport Situational Prevention Approach

The Sport Situational Prevention Approach (SSPA) is a new, three-year, grant-funded project in collaboration with leading authority Dr. Keith Kaufman. The SSPA aims to:

  1. help keep athletes safe;
  2. support and strengthen prevention efforts in sports;
  3. create safety tools tailored for use by the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee and elite youth sports organizations;
  4. create an early warning system to identify and address safety risks when they are in their earliest stages.
