SafeSport Reporting

Please note that there are a number of options and requirements to report abuse.

Report to law enforcement immediately if you are aware of abuse. If abuse includes sexual misconduct report to both law enforcement and the U.S. Center for SafeSport.

Click here to report child abuse to local authorities.

Click here to report sexual misconduct to the U.S. Center for SafeSport.

Click here to report other forms of misconduct (physical/emotional).

Other forms of misconduct include physical misconduct, emotional misconduct, bullying, hazing and/or harassment. Reports are submitted to USAV and the appropriate region. Reports can also be submitted by calling 1-855-306-7775. By submitting the form, you are giving permission to USA Volleyball’s SafeSport Program staff to contact you. Your report will be sent to the appropriate region for review and action. Although USA Volleyball accepts anonymous reporting, doing so limits the ability to investigate and respond.

Out of respect for the importance of this issue and to encourage honest and effective reporting, knowingly making a false or malicious report will not be tolerated and may be a violation of USA Volleyball’s Code of Conduct.

CONTACT 9-1-1 IMMEDIATELY IF YOU'RE FACING A LIFE-THREATENING EMERGENCY

 

The Center's goal is to be accessible, empathetic and responsive to anyone needing assistance. We understand and respect that asking for help or making a report can be an emotional process. Our professionals are highly trained and handle every situation with the attention and confidentiality it deserves.

We want to make reporting as simple as possible; below are guidelines to help you choose the right option(s). If in doubt, you can always contact the Center to ask questions. The Center is commissioned to respond to any report of a SafeSport Code violation involving sexual misconduct for the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Movements. It can manage other types of Code violations on a case-by-case basis.
