Who is required to complete the U110: U.S. Center for SafeSport Course?
Adult athletes (18 years and older) and all adult professional/instructor members must take the course as a condition of membership. Additionally, any adult in a member club who has regular contact with or authority over minors also must complete the U110 course.

The Center's goal is to increase awareness of athlete safety, and the U.S. Center for SafeSport course is an important educational tool toward building a strong community effort for safety.

Is there an exception when an athlete may not have to complete the course?
Survivors of abuse may receive an exemption from this education and training policy. Requests for an exemption may be made directly to the U.S. Center for SafeSport at ngbservices@safesport.org, and will be addressed on a case-by-case basis. Any other waiver request may be sent to mbusby@usagym.org.

If a member needs assistance in registering for the course, he/she should contact the Member Services Department at 800.345.4719 or via email at membership@usagym.org.
