The Girls Academy (GA) has partnered with STOPit Solutions, one of the nation’s leading experts in school safety, to bring its Anonymous Reporting System (ARS) to the league’s 10,000 athletes and their families. This showcases the long-term commitment to continue developing safe and healthy environments for the GA athletes across the country.
The program teaches and empowers athletes and their families to recognize and anonymously report safety, misconduct, and compliance concerns BEFORE they escalate into a crisis.
“We have been working diligently to find the perfect solution for our players, families and coaches that provides the best platform and processes to ensure a safe sporting environment. Ultimately, STOPit became the clear and simple answer for us. This partnership is one built on the joint vision and mission of keeping children safe at all times and in all realms. This is by far one of the most important offerings that we provide to our membership.”
-Lesle Gallimore, Commissioner of the Girls Academy
STOPit echoes this sentiment and looks forward to the organization’s partnership with the Girls Academy.
“We are honored to be partnering with the Girls Academy to bring our program to athletes and their families. Our program will build upon the safe and healthy League environment that The Girls Academy has established and is committed to developing.”
-Parkhill Mays, CEO of STOPit Solutions
The GA and STOPit Solutions will be rolling out the program the week of November 29th, 2021. Teams and players will be notified, and training will be provided to ensure awareness of the program.
