Report a concern
Resources for your safety
We want to make reporting as simple as possible; below are guidelines to help you choose the right option(s). If in doubt, you can always contact us with questions. The Center is authorized to respond to any report of a SafeSport Code violation for sexual misconduct involving individuals who participate within the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic community. We can also address other types of code violations on a case-by-case basis.
Contact 9-1-1 immediately if you're facing a life-threatening emergency
The Center’s goal is to be accessible, empathetic and responsive to anyone needing assistance. We understand and respect that asking for help or making a report can be an emotional process. Our professionals are highly trained and handle every situation with the attention and confidentiality it deserves.
Report to the U.S. Center for SafeSport
The Center handles ALL reports of sexual abuse and child abuse within the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Movements. Make a report to the Center if you have a reasonable suspicion of child abuse (including child sexual abuse), sexual misconduct, non-consensual sexual conduct, sexual harassment or intimate relationships involving an imbalance of power. The Center also accepts reports of emotional and physical misconduct (including bullying, hazing and harassment) within the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Movements.
The Center employees a Resource & Process Advisor who can assist you with locating and connecting with various resources and support services, both online and in your local area, and can also answer questions you might have about the Response & Resolution process. The Resource & Process Advisor is a neutral party, uninvolved in the investigative process, who can assist both Claimants and Respondents throughout the process, and can address questions from witnesses and third-party reporters.
If you are a mandatory reporter, you may also be required to report suspected child abuse or child sexual abuse to law enforcement, in addition to reporting to the Center.
