Project SAFEFIELD

SafeField

Developing a solid foundation of core values and ethics for our college and professional athletes.

safefield1Project Safefield will develop athletes and athletic department personnel to set the standard for addressing domestic violence and sexual assault on campuses and within our communities. By implementing a multiphase program incorporating teammates, coaches, staff, family, friends and community resources, Project Safefield will direct positive change to eliminate a culture of violence while maintaining the purity of competition on the field. Through coaching and mentoring, partnerships between athletic programs and community resources, and embracing a zero-tolerance policy, the team will establish procedures that help the players and the program instill a culture of victory without perpetrating violence.
