Beach OCR World Championships, 5 May 2019
Our mission is to make athlete well-being a priority for OCR athletes worldwide. All athletes deserve to participate in OCR free from bullying, hazing, sexual misconduct or any form of emotional or physical abuse.
World OCR follows the guidelines of the International Olympic Committee, the International Safeguards for Children in Sport working group and the joint Pro Safe Sport programme of the Council of Europe and the European Union related to creating and implementing policies to safeguard athletes and children from harassment and abuse in sport.
World OCR subscribes to Safe Sport Codes developed for athletes by national and international organisations. We are developing a culture of intolerance of sexual abuse and harassment in obstacle sports under the guidance of the World OCR Safe Sport Committee.
We believe education and awareness are critical to creating safe and respectful sporting environments, free of abuse and harassment. World OCR follows best practices, policies and programs consistent with guidance from leading organizations. Click below for IOC training modules on harassment and abuse in sport,
