USOC SafeSport Training Program

2/21/2016
 
The United States Olympic Committee has directed all of their National Governing Bodies, including USA Track & Field, to implement the SafeSport training program throughout their organization.  This training program is available free online and can be taken at your convenience. 
SafeSport seeks to create a healthy, supportive environment for all our athletes compete and train.  Through education, resources, and training, we help members of the sport community recognize, reduce, and respond to misconduct in sport. 
All USATF National Staff, Board Members, Youth Committee members, registered agents, coaches on the Coaches Registry, youth club coaches, and youth club administrators are required to complete the USOC SafeSport course; and all certified officials are expected to also complete the course.
The SafeSport online training module 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.
