The WSF online course for safe snowboarding is now accessible in 6 languages

SafeShred is an educational program that aims at raising awareness on ethics and integrity issues in snowboarding among the grassroots riders, especially young ones between 13-15 years of age – the future of snowboarding.

On the WSF Academy, the SafeShred E-learning course is now available in 6 languages: English, French, Finnish, German, Italian and Swedish. It is short, fun, easy to understand and divided into five modules:

(1) Basic Human Rights,
(2) Reporting and Speaking up,
(3) Harassment/Bullying,
(4) Anti-Doping and
(5) Manipulation of Sports Competitions.


This course:

  • is completely free and has no time limit to complete
  • contains short videos for a total of 50 mins to watch
  • has short quiz after each module
  • provides a certificate of completion
  • is entirely downloadable in PDF format


The E-Learning course can be taken either:

  • By the rider themselves: Where the rider creates an account using an email id and basic information
  • By the rider assisted by a parent/coach: Where the parent or coach creates an account using their email id
  • By the riders together in a group setting: Where the coach or club/federation staff member creates the account and runs through the course in a group setting



Under the coordination of the WSF, the SafeShred material was developed by the experts of the Foundation for Sport Integrity (Stitching CSCF) with the support of the six national associations: Austrian Snowboard Association, Finnish Snowboard Association, Snowboard Germany, Snowboard Italy, Swedish Ski Association, Swiss Ski. The SafeShred project is co-financed by the Erasmus+ program of the European Union.
