Canadian Sport Risk Registry Updated

Updated Canadian Sport Risk Registry offers solutions to manage predictable and costly challenges that can distract organizations from focusing on their athletes

(Ottawa, Ontario – September 16, 2014) – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) would like to notify sport organizations that new risks and solutions have been added to the website at http://cces.ca/risk-registry. This serves as an update to the initial publishing of the online Canadian Risk Registry in 2013. The free, online registry is for Canadian sport organizations looking to manage risks that can get in the way of providing support and resources to their athletes. The Registry is a database of examples of real-life organizational risks and solutions identified by national sport organizations (NSOs). It also includes a step-by-step template to help organizations identify, work through, and manage different risks.

The goal of the Risk Registry database is to help sport leaders plan for risks that can distract them from achieving organizational goals and delivering the quality of sport Canadians expect.  A list of sport-specific examples of risks (e.g., weak communication plans, staff turnover, or lack of depth and balance of sport performance across the country), along with suggestions on how to address those risks, is included.  The risks and solutions are presented generically and anonymously, with a view to providing helpful insight to help sport leaders think differently about the risks that “keep them up at night.”

Sport leaders can access the online resource at http://cces.ca/risk-registry.

The CCES is an independent, national, not-for profit organization. We recognize that true sport can make a great difference for individuals, communities and our country. We are committed to working collaboratively to activate a values-based and principle-driven sport system; protecting the integrity of sport from the negative forces of doping and other unethical threats; and advocating for sport that is fair, safe and open to everyone.
