Youth Training, powered by the U.S. Center for SafeSport more

Knowledge at all ages is an important step in preventing abuse and misconduct, however parents might often struggle with how to discuss bullying, harassment, hazing, physical abuse, emotional abuse, and sexual misconduct and abuse with their youth athlete.

That is why the U.S. Center for SafeSport has developed free, educational courses for youth athletes of all ages.

There are five courses designed for youth athletes:

1) SafeSport for Preschoolers

2) SafeSport for Grades K-2

3) SafeSport for 3-5

4) SafeSport for Middle School Athletes

5) SafeSport for High School Athletes

USA Softball would like to encourage athletes of all ages to participate in the free training provided by the U.S. Center for SafeSport on their Athlete Safety platform.
