Step-By-Step How To Take The Refresher Course

Thank you for your reasonable request. USSF and the U.S. Center for SafeSport do not provide exemptions on this basis. Many of us undergo excellent child abuse prevention training for roles or position filled outside of our roles in sport. However, we all must comply with the training requirement.

The training provided by the U.S. Center for SafeSport is targeted to their particular Code, which governs all of our participants. It covers how certain behaviors are defined under the Code and what is and is not prohibited. It also covers the reporting obligations, which differ depending on the type of misconduct involved.

Update September 3rd, 2019: The U.S. Center for SafeSport Youth Athlete Training courses are now live! These FREE resources include courses for children of preschool age; grades K-2; grades 3-5; middle school and high school. These online trainings are designed as an introduction for minor athletes and their parents or other caregivers to understand the importance of positive, welcoming environments in sports, where misconduct like bullying or abuse is less likely to happen, and to know where to report abuse, should it occur.

Each course requires that a parent/legal guardian create an account to provide consent for their child to access the training. Once an account is created, parents can choose which course is best for their child based on their actual or developmental age. Each course will take less than 30 minutes to complete. A writeable PDF certificate is available at the conclusion of each training, and parents are encouraged to create one bearing their child's name. https://athletesafety.org/training/index
