 What is SafeSport?

We all have a role to play in creating a healthy setting for sport. SafeSport helps raise awareness about misconduct in sport, promote open dialogue, and provide training and resources. When we work as a team, we can build a game plan to make sport safe ― for everyone. Learn more about Safe Sport.

USA Triathlon has implemented an Education and Training Policy to strengthen its athlete safety program and to ensure the environments in its athletic programs are as safe as possible at every level. The education component required by USA Triathlon provides participants with information necessary to more effectively monitor their organization/team, minimize the opportunities for physical and sexual abuse and other types of misconduct, and respond to concerns. It is also a strong public statement that the organization places a priority on athlete safety.

SafeSport responsibilities for Clubs

The U.S. Center for SafeSport requires that any Adult Participant who is in a position of authority over or who has regular contact with a minor athlete take the SafeSport training. Additionally, all members of the club Board of Directors must take SafeSport training.

Regular Contact is defined as ongoing interactions during a 12-month period wherein an Adult Participant is in a role of direct and active engagement with any Minor Athlete(s).

All clubs are responsible for following USA Triathlon's Minor Athlete Abuse Preventing Policies. To read these policies, please click here.
