Bullying of any kind is unacceptable at EYSA. If bullying does occur, all club members and parents/guardians should be able to tell EYSA about this and know that incidents will be dealt with promptly and effectively. Anyone who knows or even suspects that bullying is happening is expected to tell his/her Coach, Commissioner or an officer of the club. We are committed to playing our part to teach players to treat each other with respect.
Bullying is the repetitive, intentional hurting of one person or group by another person or group, where the relationship involves an imbalance of power. It can happen face-to-face or through cyberspace, and comes in many different forms: verbal, physical, emotional, misuse of digital technologies or communications.
People can be targeted for any reason, but people who bully others often target ‘difference’ and bullying can be a form of wider discrimination. For example, bullying behavior may be: racist, homophobic, sexist or disablist.
