Contact The Authorities
Under Provincial Legislation, if you have reasonable grounds to suspect that a participant is or may be suffering from emotional abuse, physical abuse, and/or sexual abuse, you should immediately report the suspicion and the information on which it is based to the local child protection agency and/or the local police department. In Alberta, call the Child Abuse hotline 1-800-387-KIDS (5437).
File a Report with AGF
To submit a Code of Conduct Violation Form or to submit a Complaint/Concern to the Alberta Gymnastics Federation (AGF), please select one Harassment Officer and one AGF delegate to receive the report. Every form received will be treated with the utmost confidentiality and the action taken will be reported back to you. If you require anonymous submission, please mail to the AGF office.
Good Faith Reporting
A reporting person who files an AGF Code of Conduct Violation form must do so with no malice and/or information known to be false, fabricated or retaliatory in nature. Reporters must have reasonable grounds for believing the information disclosed does indeed indicate a violation. Knowingly submitting a false or malicious report will be viewed as a major infraction.
There will be no retaliation of good faith reports that turn out to be unsubstantiated. No reporting person shall suffer adverse employment consequences, retaliation or harassment as a result of their report.
Coaching Code of Ethics
