This booklet marks the end of the European project Safeguarding Youth Sport (SYS), managed by the International Centre for Ethics in Sport in close collaboration with 10 partners from 8 EU member states.
The project ran for 18 months (1 January 2014 to 30 June 2015) and received funding through the 2013 Preparatory Actions in the Field of Sport of the European Commission. Its aim was to safeguard elite young athletes from integrity threats by improving training and competition conditions.
This publication reflects the results of all the hard work done by the SYS project consortium, and is intended to raise awareness of this important topic among European elite sport stakeholders and to stimulate them to act accordingly.
