This can have significant impacts for athletes especially in regards to their health, family, social life as well as education work and sporting expectations.
Tagged photos, blog posts and social networking interactions now shape how a young athlete is perceived by others online and offline both now and in the future. Depending on how good or bad this digital reputation is, this can affect friendships, relationships, possible selections and is very important that today’s athletes are aware of what digital picture they are portraying of themselves and protect their digital reputation today and in the future.
Unfortunately cyber abuse can have devastating effects on young athletes wellbeing and sense of safety. Cyber abuse can be seriously threatening, intimidating, harassing and humiliating for athletes.
This is an important area for all young athletes, coaches, parents and administrators to understand the complexities of this challenging environment.
As such we are pleased to announce that Greg Gebhart from esafety https://www.esafety.gov.au/ will be undertaking session in Launceston and Hobart to address these areas. These session are free of charge for all participants:
The presentation will provide all participants with an overview of how young athletes/people use technology and the risks they may be exposed to.
Participants will be provided practical information to support conversations and safety measures for today’s young athletes/people. Strategies for the safe use of the internet will be explained during these presentations .
