3. Résumé


«The results show that few policies and complaint procedures exist in sport organizations. Moreover, the sport stakeholders [including parents of athletes] involved in the sport community are not aware of these measures. In addition, the sport administrators in charge of these policies and complaint procedures are not trained to deal with this issue and, in their view, do not feel competent to react to this problem if it were to occur.» (p. 332) In the theoretical framework, the author reports that the support of parents or a third party is necessary to stop an abuse.
