SafeSport Training for Youth
The U.S. Center for SafeSport has released five training modules focused on Youth Athletes. The modules are age-based and free for participants:
- Grades K-2
- Grades 3-5
- Middle School
- High School
Each training module is 10-20 minutes in length. A parent/guardian must first create a SafeSport account in order to give consent for their child to access the training and select the module for their child’s age.
All Team Officials rostered on travel and recreational teams for the 2022-2023 year will be required to complete the SafeSport training. The SafeSport training will be valid for 1 calendar year, with a refresher course required each year after.
