USA Gymnastics cares deeply about the part the parent’s/guardian’s voice plays in preventing abuse in gymnastics. Reading our USA Gymnastics Safety & Response Policy is important for information related to misconduct in gymnastics and the standards to which our member clubs and professional members are held. Communication between parents, coaches, and club management is necessary for the success and well-being of every athlete. This dialogue will help us build a community that will ultimately keep athlete safety and well-being at the forefront of everything we do. USA Gymnastics Safety & Response personnel are available to talk with you, and by calling us, we can help you better understand our policies and the reporting process.
The U.S. Center for SafeSport provides parents and athletes with resources on how to help keep children safe and supported. Access to these resources is free and includes online training courses. To access the Center’s training for parents and athletes, please click here.
