The 2019 policy encompasses the requirements of the “SafeSport Code for the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Movements” and federal laws, including the “Protecting Young Victims and Safe Sport Authorization Act of 2017.”

Click here to watch USA Gymnastics' Webinar - "How to Talk About Child Sexual Abuse Prevention"

As part of our outreach for Child Abuse Prevention Month, the USA Gymnastics Safe Sport Department recently conducted a webinar on “How to Talk About Child Sexual Abuse Prevention,” which is available in the webinar archive. I have included a link to the webinar because it provides some of the guidance you and your professional members have requested for addressing safe sport issues. I also encourage you to share with the professional members in your states and regions. And, as always, please contact Toby Stark, our director of safe sport, if you have any questions. We appreciate your time and dedication to our athlete’s safety and well-being.
