SafeSport Compliance

February 23rd, 2018

 

San Diego Table Tennis Association (SDTTA)
USA Table Tennis Member Club


USA Table Tennis (USATT) and affiliated clubs are committed to maintaining safe and healthy environments for all of our members to train and compete in. Taking and passing the SafeSport tutorial course is now a mandatory safety requirement for all USATT Committee Members, Tournament Directors, Referees, Umpires, Officials, Club Owners, Coaches and anyone else that works with minors.


All coaches working within USATT Affiliated Clubs must pass a background check and the USOC’s online SafeSport tutorial. Coaches not in compliance may not work or participate in Affiliated Club activities until such time as the background check and SafeSport training are complete. Failure to comply will result in immediate termination of the Club’s Affiliation including the associated member insurance program.


Simply put, every person who is in a position of actual, perceived, or implied authority over table tennis athletes at a member club and/or is in a position that requires frequent contact with table tennis athletes at a member club must become compliant.  


While child physical and sexual abuse is one type of misconduct, it is important to remember that this policy covers many inappropriate behaviors that do not involve children at all. This policy applies regardless of the ages of the individuals involved in the alleged activity.


Here, we identify six primary types of misconduct:

  • Sexual Misconduct, including Child Sexual Abuse
  • Emotional Misconduct
  • Physical Misconduct
  • Bullying
  • Harassment
  • Hazing

All forms of misconduct are intolerable and in direct conflict with USATT ideals.


Becoming SafeSport compliant is easy, can be cost free, and is described in the following documents from the USATT.org website:
