For the safety of our athletes, particularly our youth athletes, USA Track & Field has committed to providing a safe environment in which our athletes can train and compete. We believe this is paramount to the success of our programs.

The SafeSport course is an online training module created by the United States Olympic Committee (USOC). The course covers 14 lesson areas that include, but are not limited to, sexual, physical and emotional misconduct; local and overnight travel; bullying and harassment. The training videos in total are approximately 90 minutes long and include four quizzes and a final exam.

All USATF National Staff, Board Members, Youth Committee members, registered agents, coaches on the Coaches Registry, youth club coaches and youth club administrators are required to complete the USOC SafeSport course in order to maintain an active status in those roles.

Visit the USATF SafeSport page for more details or the USOC SafeSport website at to take the course.
