An administrative hold is a type of case resolution and closure used by the U.S. Center for SafeSport (the “Center”) when a Respondent[1] is not currently a Participant, but was a Participant at some point previously. An administrative hold prevents the Respondent from participating in the Olympic and Paralympic movement until allegations are resolved.[2]

The Center has notified USA Diving that the following individuals are subject to an administrative hold.  These individuals are prohibited from participating in USA Diving events and activities as Participants.

Any questions about administrative holds should be directed to the Center.
