USOC’s SafeSport
USOC’s intent with SafeSport is to provide information and resources so that all members of the sport community have the awareness, tools and support structure they need to do their part. By taking a proactive stance and working together, we can ensure that sport continues to deliver on its promise to athletes and the communities that nurture them.  Here is a good quote from a recent SafeSport Newsletter – “Athlete safety and welfare policies do not imply distrust and are not intended to portray coaches or others as “villains.” The appropriate analogy is to liken these policies to what we all have to endure when taking an airline trip and tolerating airport security measures. We suffer these restrictions on our personal freedoms because we know that one terrorist can cause terrible harm. Similarly, athlete safety and welfare policies restrict the actions and behaviors of coaches and others in order to maximize the possibility that we will be able to protect program participants from the harm caused by one person with malicious intent.”
