Both the needs of elite child athletes and the measures we can put in place to prevent abuse are not well understood. But by telling a new story we can build support for policies and programmes to promote the wellbeing of child athletes and prevent abuse. The recommendations in this guide will help you to frame your communications in ways that counter challenging beliefs, and instead encourage more productive thinking that will build support for positive changes to promote elite child athletes’ wellbeing.
