USA Volleyball SafeSport

Posted by Invasion on Aug 29 2016 at 09:26AM PDT in 2016-2017

All Invasion Coaches, Team Reps, and Chaperones will be required to complete the USA Volleyball SafeSport Training Course this season. This is not mandated through USAV; however, Invasion will be requiring anyone who is in regular contact with our players to complete this course prior to the beginning of the 2016-2017 season.

USA Volleyball & SafeSport
Committed to Safety for All Participants
The safety of its participants is of paramount importance to USA Volleyball. USA Volleyball has ZERO TOLERANCE for abuse and misconduct.

This includes not only on-court safety, but also off-court safety in any part of USA Volleyball’s programs. USA Volleyball is committed to creating safe and fun environments for youth. This includes, but not limited to, providing training, educational materials and resources for our regions, clubs, coaches, parents and athletes.

Make the Commitment

Want to make sport safer? One in four girls and one in six boys are sexually abused before the age of 18 – and with 44 million kids under the age of 18 participating in sport, we have an opportunity to change the odds.

USA Volleyball has developed a SafeSport Handbook, intended to be a central location for all of the policies and procedures that are designed to protect its youth participants from all types of misconduct and abuse. It also includes information and education for adults on how to be proactive, to recognize areas of concern and signs of abuse.
This SafeSport Handbook includes the various Policies that apply to all USA Volleyball Member Programs and address the following areas:
• Sexual Abuse
• Physical Abuse
• Emotional Abuse
• Bullying, Threats and Harassment
• Hazing
By combining all of these elements into a comprehensive SafeSport Program, USA Volleyball is working toward creating the safest possible environment for participation in the sport of volleyball.

Report Abuse/Misconduct
USA Volleyball requires the reporting of sexual misconduct by or of any member and strongly encourages reporting of any concerns related to SafeSport. USA Volleyball 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 USA Volleyball’s Code of Conduct.
