SafeSport Education and Misconduct Reporting Procedures

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. While USA Triathlon does not have control over every member and does not control their activities, we provide information about various safety-related actions that may be available to our members, and encourage our members to use these resources.

Learn more about the comprehensive educational program and additional resources.

USA Triathlon requires reporting of sexual misconduct or ethical misconduct by any coach, race director, support staff and strongly encourages reporting boundary violations, red flag behavior, or any other inappropriate conduct. Child abuse and child sexual abuse is a crime. If USA Triathlon receives a complaint of sexual misconduct involving a minor, we will report it to the proper authorities. We urge all individuals to do the same.

Out of respect for the importance of this issue and to encourage honest and effective reporting, knowingly false vindictive reporting will not be tolerated. Providing specific information regarding abuse or suspected abuse helps USA Triathlon to investigate the complaint, and when appropriate, enforce consequences.

If you need to report a violation or have questions about your situation, please contact USAT staff member Linda Cleveland ( or 719-955-2810), who can help answer any questions you may have.
