Coach & Volunteer Darkness to Light Training
Join the City of Charleston Recreation Department as we unite in USA champion gymnast Aly Raisman's Number FliptheSwitch campaign partnered with Darkness to Light Stewards of Children® training. The Number FlipTheSwitch campaign was inspired by the many people who have voiced concern to Aly about the lack of support and attention being devoted to the issue of sexual abuse within the sport of gymnastics, particularly at the grassroots level.
Athlete safety in youth sports is our main priority and this campaign calls for all adults involved in ALL youth sports to complete Darkness to Light's Stewards of Children® training, the leading child sexual abuse prevention program in the country. Use Aly's special code on the FlitheSwitch website access Darkness to Light's Stewards of Children® training at no cost and get trained today.
