Safe Sporting Climate

Utrechtse Studenten Basketball Federatie USBF

The most important thing for USBF is that you feel safe and welcome on the field and at the club. Therefore, we have a safe sporting climate policy. We expect all members to adhere to the policy. This is how we create a safe sporting environment for everyone.

The safe sporting climate takes into account:

  • Physical safety both on and around the court. But also in the sports café, at our local pub, and during activities and events.
  • Social safety related to the association's culture. This includes the freedom to say what you want to say, to be who you are, not having to do something under duress and to feel welcome within the association.

To read the full policy and code of conduct, read the safe sporting climate policy (English) or beleid veilig sportklimaat (Dutch).

Confidants (Confidential contact persons)

Are you experiencing something that you would like to talk to someone about? We have appointed confidants at USBF. These persons have a 100% confidentiality obligation to you. They do not have any obligations towards the board of the association. You can approach them in confidence about your experiences and feelings both at and outside of USBF.
