Err on the Side of Protecting the Athlete in All Situations

The following measures in place, found in Articles 9 and 10 and the Safe Sport Policy, include:

  • Allowing anonymous complaints;
  • Strengthening protocol for suspensions (Articles 9 and 10);
  • Utilizing the provisions of Article 10.5 to place an individual on interim suspension;
  • Requiring reporting for misconduct and Proactive Policy violations.

The Safe Sport Policy is and will continue to be revised on a regular (quarterly) basis as necessary. The Policy includes additional measures, including modifications related to the protection of its athletes. USA Gymnastics will continuously review and align its actions, bylaws and policies with the new federal law, the standards outlined in the U.S. Center for SafeSport’s Code, and any other state and federal laws.
