SafeSport Education & Outreach

All athletes deserve to participate in sports free from bullying, hazing, sexual misconduct or any form of emotional or physical abuse.  Education and awareness are the most critical components to creating safe and respectful sporting environments, free of abuse and harassment. SafeSport's team of subject matter experts has developed best practices, policies and programs consistent with guidance from leading organizations. 

Resources for Coaches

SafeSport provides online training for coaches and others engaged in working with youth covering the following subjects:   sexual abuse, hazing, bullying, emotional misconduct, physical misconduct, harassment (non-sexual) as well as reporting obligations.

Coaches, administrators and other volunteers who complete the three part SafeSport training course become "SafeSport Trained."  NOTE:  Beginning with the 2018-19 season, the completion of the 3 part "SafeSport Training" curriculum is a requirement for all coaches to card with US Club Soccer.
