Introduction to SafeSport
Make the Commitment
Want to make sport safer? Then join Make the Commitment: Stop Abuse in Sport, the U.S. Olympic Committee’s 12-month safe sport campaign, which runs from April 2013 through April 2014. 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. Through free monthly newsletters, supporting resources and webinars, we’ll learn how clubs, coaches and parents can work together to stop child sexual abuse.
