We, the Guardians – Platform for combating violence in sports

The problem of violence in sports is a prevalent problem in Serbia and North Macedonia. Particularly between peers, with many of them experiencing some form of violence in their lives. Especially as many people regularly attend sports clubs, in these dynamic groups of people infighting, violence, and peer pressure are constant threats.

Even though many sports clubs have been trying to implement measures on stopping violence, a majority simply do not know how to deal with violence. Inadequate implementation of some personal methods for preventing violence mostly cannot stop it, and in the worst case, can intensify it even more.

That is why “We, the Guardians” has created a manual and a community dedicated to solving the problem of violence in sports clubs. Through the active community and a guideline, we can help with this problem and hopefully create a safe and welcoming space for everyone who wants to do sports.
