Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policies (MAAPP)

The mission of USA Judo is to foster the growth of the sport of judo in the United States of America and support competitive excellence by U.S. athletes in international Olympic and Paralympic competition. Along with the rest of the Olympic Movement governing bodies, USA Judo has teamed up with the Center for SafeSport to create a few different lists of policies that every USA Judo member must adhere to. The Center has created the baseline Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policies (MAAPP) and USA Judo has personalized it to fit our members and clubs, these policies are aimed to keep young athletes safe, supported, and knowledgeable throughout different environments.

The current MAAPP for USA Judo can be found below. Please note that this is a working document that can be updated at any time, all updates and changes will be communicated to our members beforehand.
