USOC SafeSport

Everyone has a role to play in creating a healthy setting for sport. SafeSport helps raise awareness about misconduct in sport, promote open dialogue, and provide training and resources. When we work as a team, we can build a game plan to make sport safe ― for everyone.

Providing a safe environment to protect the health and well being of athletes is a high priority for the USSA. SafeSport is a valuable partnership between the USSA and the U.S. Olympic Committee with a variety of SafeSport Guidance Resources to help USSA clubs, athletes, coaches, officials and parents. Among the services is a hotline and counseling resource for athletes.

Hotline
This no-cost, confidential service helps athletes manage crisis situations and other misconduct-related issues that they may face. The hotline is staffed by professionals who will listen to concerns and quickly connect callers with resources in the community. Any athlete with any sport organization may call the hotline at any time, which is staffed 24/7. The hotline services are currently available:
 
Call: 855.665.5473
TDD: 800.697.0353
 
Counseling
In addition, a no-cost counseling service will be available to covered athletes within the Olympic community. For covered athletes, the USOC will cover three free telephone counseling sessions. For those athletes who are not covered by the counseling service, they may still call the hotline at any time and receive guidance concerning resources available to them in their community.
