The U.S. Center for SafeSport offers a free online training course aimed at creating safe and respectful sport environments for all athletes.
The "SafeSport Trained" course is required before one can become a Registered Volunteer. The course will help you recognize if an athlete is being abused. Most importantly, you will learn how to prevent this from happening or how to respond if the abuse already has happened. This training ensures you are a part of our daily effort to make athlete well-being the centerpiece of our nation’s sport programs. Thank you for helping us champion respect, and end abuse in sport.
The SafeSport Trained course covers the following topics:
- Mandatory Reporting
- Sexual Misconduct Awareness Education
- Emotional and Physical Misconduct
Here is a how-to guide on the online enrollment process for the SafeSport website.
