“It” is abuse of our most precious assets: our children. And it drives the U.S. Center for SafeSport’s work, arm-in-arm with parents, coaches, athletes, and advocates to end abuse in sport.
This is where you get in the game. By promoting strong and healthy relationships among athletes, parents, and coaches, and by spotting emerging problems before they worsen, you can help stop abuse.
We get it. This isn’t easy. Having conversations with kids and getting them to open up about their day—can be challenging.
By paying attention not only to your child’s answers, but also their tone and body language you can distinguish whether their mood or fears relate to their performance, their passion for their sport, or how they were treated by a coach or teammate
Headquartered in Denver, Colorado, the U.S. Center for SafeSport is an independent, 501(c)(3) nonprofit responsible for responding to and preventing emotional, physical, and sexual misconduct and abuse in the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Movement. The Center’s mission is to make athlete well-being the centerpiece of our nation’s sports culture through abuse prevention, education, and accountability.
