The United States Olympic Committee (USOC) requires that all Olympic National Governing Bodies (NGBs) institute the SafeSport Program in 2015. All Youth Club Coaches and Volunteers will need to complete the SafeSport Program 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.
The SafeSport course is an online training module put together by the USOC. The course covers fourteen lesson areas that include, but are not limited to, sexual, physical and emotional misconduct; local and overnight travel; bullying and harassment. The training videos in total are approximately 90 minutes long and include four quizzes and a final exam.
