Safe Sports Participation for Everyone
Engaging in sport should be an opportunity for all athletes to have fun and spend time with friends. Sport also encourages a healthy lifestyle, and builds self-confidence. Athletes often do better off the field than those who do not participate in sport. They learn goal-setting, teamwork and time management skills. Athletes are less likely to use cigarettes, drugs and alcohol; they have higher graduation rates and are more likely to attend college.
DISABLED SPORTS EASTERN SIERRA (DSES) has adopted a Sport Protection policy to ensure fun, safe participation in DSES programs, activities and events. The full policy is available for review here.
