SafeSport Training For Parents

Developed for parents of athletes, this course addresses important topics around recognizing, preventing and taking action against misconduct in sports, from a parent perspective. This course, which takes a little over half an hour to complete, helps parents become active participants in creating safe, positive sports environments for their child.




It is mandatory that all coaches, managers, referees, board members, locker room monitors, volunteers complete SafeSport training.  Those that took the SafeSport training prior to April 1, 2015 must take the refresher course.  Training must be complete prior to being placed on a roster.
