NEW PLATFORM, NEW COURSES
The new SafeSport LMS platform and three-course SafeSport training (which will be available at https://safesport.org) will launch Monday, October 2. Each of these three courses is approximately 30 minutes:†
  1. Sexual Misconduct Awareness Education
  2. Reporting Child Sexual Abuse

Please be aware some deceptive e-mails are being generated and sent to local associations, clubs, and affiliates using the e-mail addresses listed on your websites.
