Established in 2015, the Alliance of Social Workers in Sports raises awareness of the ways in which social work practice can partner with and contribute to all levels and all segments of sports. ASWIS promotes a social worker in sports perspective that is grounded in social and economic justice, strength-based approaches, and person-in-environment frameworks. ASWIS encourages the full range of social work practice in sports, from case management and clinical services through advocacy and policy practice for every level and segment of sports.

Social workers in sports play a unique role advocating and protecting the wellbeing of athletes. To that end, the Alliance of Social Workers in Sports (ASWIS), as the representative body of social workers in sport, supports policies that promote the whole athlete, encompassing their physical, mental and emotional wellbeing as well as the greater community and environment in which they compete and live. Please see the attached policy platform to learn about our particular areas of advocacy.
