Reporting A Concern

The USOPC is committed to providing a positive, healthy, and safe environment, and promoting a culture of integrity within the United States Olympic and Paralympic community. An important part of this commitment is the USOPC’s Integrity Platform, which includes reporting mechanisms that allow members of our community to report their concerns either confidentially or anonymously. Links to these various reporting tools are included below along with a description of where you should report your concern.

All cases of suspected emotional, physical, or sexual abuse of a minor must be reported to law enforcement immediately. Filing a report with the U.S. Center for SafeSport or the USOPC does not satisfy this obligation.

If you are experiencing an emergency, call 911 immediately.
