Corporal punishment is when, through gesture or use of force, your coach or any other adult in your sports environment, causes you physical harm or injury to punish you or correct your behaviours. You should know that the law forbids the people who oversee you in your sport to use corporal punishment. This behaviour is just as unacceptable coming from your coach or any other professional. If it happens to you, you don’t have to accept it! It means you are in a situation of physical abuse and you have to seek help from organizations or people you trust. [A; J; K]
