American Gold Gymnastics & USA Gymnastics Safe Sport Initiatives
At American Gold Gymnastics, our top priority at all times is the safety and welfare of our gymnastics participants including gymnasts, parents, coaches, staff and the gymnastics community as a whole.
USA Gymnastics is committed to fostering a fun, healthy and safe environment for all members. Beginning in 2012, USA Gymnastics has provided awareness, prevention and reporting information regarding sexual misconduct to professional members, Member Clubs, and athlete members and their families through the Clubs Care and We Care Campaigns. We are pleased to introduce the USA Gymnastics Safe Sport program, which includes information and guidance on six forms of abuse that occur throughout our society and youth sport. USA Gymnastics Safe Sport program, which is replacing the Clubs Care and We Care Campaigns, provides policies, education, a reporting structure, and tools intended to assist our Members Clubs, professional members, athlete parents and athletes as we work together to promote a safe environment.
