USA Baseball SafeSport
USA Baseball is passionate about raising awareness of the SafeSport initiative and providing our athletes unparalleled development and competitive opportunity in a safe environment.
The U.S. Center for SafeSport is a 501(c)(3) non-profit focused on preventing physical, emotional and sexual abuse in sport. The Center, initially chartered by the U.S. Olympic Committee, is an independent organization with a nine-member board of directors, including subject-matter experts in abuse prevention, child abuse and sexual assault investigation, ethics compliance and sport administration.

USA Baseball announced the addition of three new, online courses from the U.S. Center for SafeSport to the USA Baseball Online Education Center. All three courses are immediately available free of charge at USABaseball.Education.
The new online courses are part of a series of efforts by the U.S. Center for SafeSport to foster a culture of safety by raising awareness, developing best practices, and providing education and training to promote respect and prevent abuse. The courses include:
CONTACT 9-1-1 IMMEDIATELY IF YOU'RE FACING A LIFE-THREATENING EMERGENCY
Contact your local authorities if you have a reasonable suspicion that child sexual abuse or neglect has occurred. All reports of child abuse or sexual assault of a minor must also be reported to local authorities. Reports of abuse not involving a minor may also be reported to local authorities.
Any person observing, having knowledge or experiencing any of the above prohibited activity must immediately report such activity to a member of the program staff, a member of USA Baseball senior staff, or directly through SafeSport.
