Abstract: In October 2014, the International Safeguards for Children in Sport were launched. These Safeguards were developed, implemented and evaluated based on a pilot process which took place over the preceding 2 years. Throughout this piloting phase, a range of qualitative techniques were employed to capture the experiences of people within 32 of the organisations who were working towards the International Safeguards. The participant organisations varied based on their geographical focus (e.g., local, national and international) as well as their mission (e.g., participation, competition and sport for development). Based on a thematic analysis, 8 key pillars were identified on which systems which safeguard children can be built. These are known as the CHILDREN pillars: Cultural sensitivity, Holistic, Incentives, Leadership, Dynamic, Resources, Engagement and Networks. Illustrative examples are provided and the future directions of this project will be discussed.
