Athlete Maltreatment in Sport.

The celebrated side of sports is the high-intensity display of athleticism and competition that draws spectators to the stands, televisions, and streaming services. That version of sports is presented as the hotly contested, highly sought-after glory that the competitors sacrifice their time and bodies to pursue. The competitive passion for sport can be observed at every level of sport: from youth sports leagues to elite and professional sports competitions. This chapter will peel back the layers of sports to expose the elements that are not glamorous or celebrated. It will explore the staggering costs under the surface: to athletes, members of the athlete's entourage, and teammates when maltreatment occurs. It will also outline the role of the team physician in providing a safe clinical environment and tools to navigate disclosure and beyond.
