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.

The Center has launched a new training designed with adult athletes in mind. This educational course will help adults better understand important topics such as power imbalances, consent, retaliation, the importance of bystander intervention, and how to report misconduct. Click here to get started.
