Fair Coaching

Fair Coaching is a 3 year project that started in 2020, aimed at promoting respect and values among professional and most of all grassroots coaches and trainers, contrasting sexist, violent and discriminatory behaviours to ensure a healthy and inspiring sport environment for professional and young athletes.

Lead by Lega Pallavolo Serie A from Italy, the objectives of Fair Coaching are:

  • Promote a widespread awareness among professional and grassroots coaches, supporters, athletes and athletes families about unfair and discriminatory behaviours in coaching towards all athletes and particularly young female athletes as they are the most affected target;
  • Support grassroots and professional sport clubs, federations, leagues and organizations in developing policy and a plan of action to prevent and tackle these behaviours and adopting binding European codes of conduct and ethical guidelines in coaching and training
  • Spread good examples in coaching and respect as well as a peer tutoring among testimonials and athletes, professional and grassroots, to increase awareness, activism, reporting about this issue in Europe

The project partners involved are: Association Alice Milliat (France)  KEA (Greece), National Coaches Association (Finland), Serbian Rugby League Federation (Serbia), ASSIST (Italy),  and the Fare network.
