Joe Webb, President of Flatirons Rush, " I couldn't be prouder of the steps our club is taking to protect all of our athletes and make sure that the sport is inclusive to everyone. Sport is meant to bring communities together and this is a way for us to strengthen that bond in our own communities “The following is an excerpt from the new Flatirons Rush Safeguarding Policy, “The inequity in women’s soccer which has been perpetuated at the highest levels of sport means that the issue of safety needs to be addressed directly as it relates to our female athletes, coaches and staff.” Part of promoting equity and safety in sport, includes acknowledging and addressing the inequality in the sport of soccer as a whole that still exists.
The goal in partnering with Her Game Too is coming together to promote the common goal of making soccer a fun and safe environment for girls, women and everyone. This means educating everyone involved in the club and the community about the abuse and harassment that can occur at all levels of the game. We, as a club, are excited for Her Game Too to have a presence within the club and the community to facilitate face to face interactions and education and to make the game of soccer a safer place for all involved.
