Minor SafeSport Education Program
To our parent(s) of USAB minor athletes,
USAB will now be requiring all junior athletes to complete minor SafeSport education before participating in any future USAB junior tournaments.
Here are the steps on how to access the courses:
- Register for an account on AthleteSafety.org.
- Parents with children under 13 will need to register on behalf of their child. All parents are recommended to register for their child.
- For Membership, please use “Not Affiliated”.
- Confirm your account and sign in.
- Under the Training Page, select the appropriate courses for your athlete(s).
- Add to cart and check out.
- Once you’ve checked out, you will be able to access the free trainings and provide consent for your child to complete the training with you.
- Once the course is completed, you will be able to issue a certificate for your child.
- Download the certificate and send to Alistair.Casey@usabadminton.org.
*Please note: The course contains information about various forms of abuse. Content is presented in an age-appropriate way but may be uncomfortable or trigger trauma for some participants, including parents who may have a history of experiencing abuse.
If you have any questions concerning SafeSport education, please email Alistair with your inquiries.
For Adult Individuals (Parents Included)
All USAB covered individuals who have regular contact and/or authority over any minor athletes are required to complete SafeSport Education. For individuals who are volunteering at a junior sanctioned tournament, please ensure that you have a current USAB membership, completed background check, and completed SafeSport training through SimplyCompete.
This can be accessed and completed through the USAB SimplyCompete portal. SafeSport Training is approximately 90 minutes.
