"Baseball Alberta is committed to providing an environment in which all individuals are treated with respect. Baseball Alberta prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, religious beliefs, colour, gender, gender identity, gender expression, physical disability, mental disability, ancestry, place of origin, marital status, source of income, family status or sexual orientation."
These words come directly from the Baseball Alberta Code of Conduct for participants. They embody perhaps the most important ideal of Baseball Alberta as a sport governing organization and that is to provide a safe, respectful environment for athletes to be able to learn, compete, have fun, and create great memories of their experience in baseball. One of the most critical aspects of providing a safe environment for athletes is to create a sport environment that is free from sexual abuse.
