Where Your Game Plan Starts. The U.S. Center for SafeSport is designated by Congress through the Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Authorization Act of 2017 to serve as the independent national safe sport organization, with the responsibility for developing policies and procedures to prevent the emotional, physical, and sexual abuse of amateur athletes. The Center’s responsibilities include Education and Training, and Response and Resolution services to National Governing Bodies. This includes:

  • Establishing training and policy requirements for national governing bodies
  • Providing training and implementing educational programs for coaches, athletes and parents
  • Receiving all sexual misconduct reports (which can be reported anonymously) from NGBs and anyone in the Movements
  • Investigating reports of sexual abuse in a confidential manner
  • Issuing decisions if an individual did or did not violate the Center for SafeSport Code
  • Sanctioning individuals found in violation of the Code, up to permanent ineligibility
  • Establishing oversight mechanisms, including regular and random audits of the NGBs.




Response and Resolution

ALL reports of sexual misconduct and child abuse must be reported to the Center, and any child abuse reports must also be reported to law enforcement within 24 hours. All reports of non-sexual misconduct should be reported to the National Governing Body.

Education and Outreach

The Center has established training and education policies, which set the minimum training requirements and policies for limiting one-on-one interactions and other proactive NGB organization policies to prevent abuse and misconduct. The Center provides consultation and best practices to prevent misconduct and abuse
