Safe Sport

In 2018, the “Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and SafeSport Authorization Act of 2017” became Federal law. The mission of the U.S. Center for Safesport is to make the athlete’s well-being the centerpiece of our nation’s sports culture. All athletes deserve to participate in sports free from bullying, hazing, sexual misconduct, or any form of emotional or physical abuse. Education and awareness are the most critical components to creating safe and respectful sporting environments, free of abuse and harassment.

USAYESS requires reporting of sexual misconduct by any member and strongly encourages reporting of any concerns relating to safe sport. USAYESS appreciates your willingness to report inappropriate behavior.

Out of respect for the importance of this issue and to encourage honest and effective reporting, knowingly making a false or vindictive report will not be tolerated and may be a violation of USAYESS Code of Conduct.

As the nation’s premier youth shooting sports program, USAYESS is leading the way to ensuring a safe and positive environment for its participant’s physical, emotional, and social development and to ensuring that it promotes an environment free from abuse and misconduct.  One of the ways we go about this is to require that every adult in our program goes through a background check and our Athlete Protection Training (APT) annually.

In order to ensure that the parents are kept informed on their athlete’s or child’s safety, we have the same APT course available to the parents, guardians, and other family members. Even if your child does not participate in sports, this course is a must. The cost of the course is $20.00.

A link will be provided on the receipt page and in your email inbox. Please use that link to complete the APT.
