The mission of USA Judo is to foster the growth of the sport of judo in the United States of America and support competitive excellence by U.S. athletes in international and Olympic competition. The privilege of membership may, therefore, be withdrawn or denied by USA Judo at any time where USA Judo determines that its member or a prospective member's conduct is inconsistent with the mission of the organization or the best interest of the judo community, particularly its athlete community.

In order to ensure the safety of its athlete community, USA Judo has adopted the USOC’s Safe Sport Training and has made this training mandatory for all certified coaches, referees, board members, medical staff, national event weight verification personnel and national office staff.


The training consists of the following three sections. Each section takes approximately 30 minutes to complete:

  1. Sexual Misconduct Awareness Education
  2. Reporting Child Sexual Abuse
  3. Emotional and Physical Misconduct

Upon completion of the online SafeSport training, individuals will be certified for two years.

A new SafeSport refresher course will be added to the platform in 2019. This will be an abbreviated version intended for individuals who have previously completed the three core SafeSport sections and need to recertify. Users completing the SafeSport refresher course will be certified for an additional two years.
