SafeSport Training

USATF has joined the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) to implement the SafeSport program. The goal of SafeSport is to provide a safe environment in our sport at all levels, but particularly for athletes who are ages 18 and under. The SafeSport program includes athlete protection policies, guidelines, codes of conduct, a background screening program, education and training, and a reporting process for any SafeSport concerns within our sport.
All Officials and Youth Club Coaches and Volunteers will need to complete the SafeSport Program. Youth Coaches must meet this requirements before your club’s membership will be approved and activated in the USATF system for 2016, and beyond. THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS RULE
SafeSport becomes a requirement of the Coaches Registry as of January 1, 2016.
Officials and coaches may complete the SafeSport training on line (allow 3 hours with exam questions interspersed).
