Safe Sports NetworkThe need for the Safe Sports Network program hit home for one of our founders one August day more than 20 years ago. He was standing next to an athletic-looking young man outside a fence watching Manchester Central High School’s football tryouts. He asked the young man why he wasn’t out there. The response to that question (“Because my family can’t afford the physical.”) planted the seed that has become the Safe Sports Network.
