SafeSport

The U.S. Center for SafeSport, headquartered in Denver, Colorado, works collaboratively with sport organizations to foster a culture of safety by raising awareness, centralizing best practices, and providing education and training to promote respect and prevent abuse. The Center encompasses two offices – one for education and outreach, and one for response and resolution. Learn more: https://www.safesport.org.

Education & Outreach

The Education & Outreach Office is a national awareness and prevention resource to sports organizations of all levels, from youth to professional. The Center develops and implements programs based on best practices to keep athletes protected from emotional, physical and sexual abuse.

  • SafeSport Training: SafeSport is a required set of three courses for instructors, coaches, volunteers and any other individual who has routine access to minors within a USA Archery or Club event or activity.

Response & Resolution

The Center’s Response & Resolution Office investigates and resolves alleged policy violations for the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Movements’ 47 sport national governing bodies. The Center will report allegations or suspicions of child abuse to appropriate law enforcement. There is no statute of limitations on alleged policy violations involving sexual misconduct. If the Center concludes an individual committed a violation, that person has an opportunity to be heard before an arbitration body.
