Take the Safe Sport Training Today for Free!!

SAFE SPORT Certification requirements for 2018 and beyond has taken on a new training requirement, a new URL and a new emphasis on education of all Sport Sport principals and policies as safeguards to our Junior Members and their participation in the sport we all value


USAV will be transitioning to a two-season SafeSport cycle starting with the 2018-2019 season


What this means is that anyone that has taken Safe Sport in the past either as a stand alone course or as coursework included in IMPACT Certification Training will remain Safe Sport certified through October 31st of 2018 after which that member will have to recertify under the new Safe Sport requirements. If recertification takes place this year then that member is good through the 2019 season.


If one of your Club Adult members needs Safe Sport Certification training then they should follow the "NEW" location and advisories from USA Volleyball which are below.

Please be advised that the U.S. Center for SafeSport new course modules are now available.  The coursework is being delivered through the USAV Academy.  Accessing the course through the USAV Academy is critical to tracking certification and expiration dates.  Members we will access the course exclusively through the USAV Academy do not access through the USOC SafeSport website.

Note from USAV Safe Sport new programming 

USAV encourages members who are already SafeSport certified to review the newly created Reporting Child Sexual Abuse module via communications on multiple media platforms as we’d like to close the gap between the original SafeSport course and the new program with as many members as quickly as possible.



Directors, please remember that neither a coach or a chaperone can be added to a team roster until they are Safe Sport certified.
I like the new emphasis on the two year recertification model, yes it does require task orientation but it is well worth the endeavor.... if it changes "just one" practice/tournament/travel/communication/event and keeps a "child safe and proficient and growing productively in our sport", we all win!!!!!
