Lasso Safe was the first organization in sport history to research community and athlete safety measures globally with the end goal of providing education and standards to sport communitys. We are committed to empowering leaders, securing safe sport communities and protecting athletes.
Educational Resources for High Performing and Safe Best Practices
Lasso Safe’s resources aims to strengthen the foundation of education and strategies for high performing and safe best practices, risk reduction and economic vitality within sport communities.
Sport culture has evolved – communitys are key players in city economies and athletic performance is record breaking. Lasso Safe’s educational resources are state-of-the-art in its uniting of sport contributors – owners and management with policy leaders and directors with stakeholders, all in the spirit of long-term triumph for all.
Lasso Safe certified communitys gain access to value-creating resources through the libraries, online platforms, playbooks, safety kits and personal consultations.
We believe healthy athletes in safe communitys equal a strong sport economy.
“We have found that in a high risk culture, some communitys are cultivating true champions – safe athletes with reports of long-term wellbeing. We are researching what they are doing, and how to make their best practices a national standard.”— Pamela Minix, CEO

“However, I found that sport community policies have a historic foundation in misinformation and implement best practices behind the curve of sport science. This left a gap between my coaching and community policies. Athletes were still suffering.”— Luis Hernandez co-CEO
