What is SafeSport?

As reports of sexual abuse in amateur sports made headlines in the 2010s, it had become clear: the US deserves a safer sports culture. To achieve this, a new paradigm anchored by a new organization would be needed. From this need, the U.S. Center for SafeSport ("SafeSport") was created. Learn more on SafeSport: About - Our Story.

Does SafeSport apply to me? How?

Federal legislation—SafeSport Act—now requires USA Roller Sports (USARS), and all the US's National Governing Bodies (NGBs), to enforce two new requirements during USARS's Membership Registration/Renewal process: (1) SafeSport Training & (2) Background Screening. When it comes to adult athletes—ages 18 years and up—SafeSport training is required. For adult members of #teamUSA, both SafeSport training and the Background Screening are required. Learn more about USARS's Policies and Requirements by member type.


Onboarding & Club Requirements

If you're joining us for your first year, it is important to note a couple of things. Parents: If the athlete is of legal age, share this resource, so the athlete can begin managing their own membership and account.


If you're an adult athlete joining our club, use the Member Registration Sport:80 portal (create an account or log in). Per our Club Requirements, adult athletes will need to do the 90-minute training in order to register successfully and receive their athlete member card (via email) before they can attend private practice, train, test, and/or compete. Once you're registered, continue with Step 2 of our Club Requirements.


If you're a parent/guardian registering an athlete not of legal age ("Minor(s)") in your household, you should also use USARS's Member Registration Sport:80 portal, but neither you nor the minor will have to complete SafeSport training. Once you've registered the athlete, continue with Step 2 of our Club Requirements.

SafeSport's Code

As reports of sexual abuse in amateur sports made headlines in the 2010s, it had become clear: America deserved a safer sports culture. To achieve this, a new paradigm anchored by a new organization would be needed. Authorized by Congress to help abuse prevention, education, and accountability take root in every sport, on every court. Dedicated solely to ending sexual, physical, and emotional abuse on behalf of athletes everywhere. From this need, the U.S. Center for SafeSport was created.
