SafeSport Training

The United States Olympic Committee has directed all National Governing Bodies, including USATF, to implement the SafeSport training program throughout their organization.  Therefore, all USATF officials, National Staff, registered agents, coaches on the Coaches Registry, and youth club coaches and administrators are required to complete the SafeSport course, which seeks to create a healthy, supportive environment for athletes. 
 
Through education, resources, and training, members of the sport community recognize, reduce, and respond to misconduct in sport.  The training consists of fourteen lesson areas including, sexual, physical and emotional misconduct; local and overnight travel; and bullying and harassment. General information about SafeSport is available at this link.

This training program is available free online and can be taken at your convenience; it may also be offered in-person by your Certification Chair.  The online training videos are approximately 90 minutes long and include four quizzes and a final exam.
