Member Alert: Disciplinary Records Update

July 02, 2020, 8:33 a.m. (ET)

Please be advised that the following individual has been placed on 3-month probation, effective July 1, 2020, by the U.S. Center for SafeSport and USA Water Ski & Wake Sports. Cole Marsee (Olathe, Kan.) – 3-Month Probation.

For a period of three (3) months, beginning on the date of issuance (July 1, 2020), Respondent Mr. Cole Marsee will be on probation. Probation is a specified period of time during which Respondent must not violate any provision of the SafeSport Code. If Respondent violates the Code during the probationary period, regardless of the severity of that violation(s), it will be considered a violation of this probation resulting in additional disciplinary sanctions, which are likely to include a period of suspension or permanent ineligibility. Respondent will only be on probation during time frames in which he is a Participant as defined by the Code (e.g. if Respondent allows his membership to lapse during the term of probation, said probationary term will be tolled until Respondent reactivates his membership).
Accordingly, Mr. Marsee has been placed on USA Water Ski & Wake Sports’ list of individuals on probation.

This action affirms USA Water Ski & Wake Sports’ paramount goal of protecting its members and participants from victimization by sexual predators and other misconduct. It is our duty, along with the USOPC, to work together to form a culture of respect in sport.
