REPORTING

All individuals, regardless of membership with USA Badminton, are encouraged to report suspected violations of the SafeSport Code, USAB SafeSport Policy, and or USAB Minor Abuse Prevention Policy. Please note that there are a few reporting options and requirements to report abuse.

According to the 2020 SafeSport Code, an Adult Participant who learns of information and reasonably suspects that a child has suffered an incident of child abuse, including sexual abuse, shall immediately make a report of the suspected abuse to both Law Enforcement and the U.S. Center for SafeSport. Filing a report with USAB does not satisfy this obligation.

Please refer to the 2020 SafeSport Code for more details: HERE

Reporting to the Center for SafeSport

Through the Center for SafeSport’s online reporting form, www.safesport.org.

Reporting to USAB

Please report all issues falling outside of the Center’s authority to Katherine.Tor@usabadminton.org.

Although USAB accepts anonymous reporting be aware that doing so limits the ability to investigate and respond. We commend and respect your effort to take this issue seriously. We also encourage honest and effective reporting, as well also remind you that making a false or malicious report will not be tolerated and may be a violation of USAB Bylaws.
