SportsEngine and Abuse Prevention Systems partner to address the risk of child sexual abuse.

 

On February 14th, the Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Authorization Act of 2017 became law.

The new legislation is a response to the abuses revealed in and around USA Gymnastics — but the impact of the legislation reaches far beyond Olympic-level sport.

The Act creates a new ‘standard of care’ for all organizations that provide youth sport programming: youth sport ministries, school leagues and athletics, camps, country club leagues, and more. In short, the new Act requires Prevention Training and Prevention Policies.

We have prepared an analysis of the Act for organizations to better understand WHO is impacted, WHAT is required and HOW to comply.
