THE U.S. CENTER FOR SAFESPORT
The U.S. Center for SafeSport is an independent, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization headquartered in Denver, Colorado.
A Federally Authorized Resource to End Abuse
Established in 2017, the U.S. Center for SafeSport is the independent and exclusive authority charged by Congress with responding to and preventing all forms of abuse and misconduct within the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Movement.
The Center receives, investigates, and responds to reports of abuse and misconduct from individuals affiliated with the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC) and its National Governing Bodies (NGBs). The Center ensures that the USOPC and NGBs properly apply policies and procedures to govern abuse prevention and maintains a database of individuals sanctioned from participation in their sport.
Throughout the Olympic and Paralympic Movement, the Center trains athletes, parents, coaches, volunteers, and organizations at all levels on best practices and principles for preventing abuse in sport settings. In doing so, the Center advances its mission of making athlete well-being the center of our nation’s sports culture through abuse prevention, education, and accountability.
Every athlete will be safe, supported, and strengthened through sport.
