The Alberta Bicycle Association (ABA) believes that everyone has the right to enjoy the sport at whatever level or position they participate. Athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers have the right to participate in a safe and inclusive training and competitive environment that is free of abuse, harassment or discrimination.
The ABA believes the welfare of everyone involved in the sport is a foremost consideration and in particular the protection of children/athletes in the sport is the responsibility of each individual, member and special interest group in the cycling community. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The ABA has signed the Responsible Coaching Movement Pledge, which applies to all ABA coaches and clubs working with youth and other members considered part of the vulnerable sector (e.g. persons with disabilities). Non-compliance could result in non-affiliation or removal of coaching certification from UCI Licence.
If you want to verify your athletes coach is a trained or certified coach with the ABA and has completed a background check, all coaches are listed at http://www.albertabicycle.ab.ca/alberta-coaches
