Important Information for Youth Clubs!
The United States Olympic Committee (USOC) required that all Olympic National Governing Bodies (NGBs) institute the SafeSport Program in 2015.

All Youth Club Coaches and Volunteers will need to complete the SafeSport Program Requirements before your club’s membership will be approved and activated in the USATF system for 2016, and beyond.  THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS RULE.
 
Requirements

2. Pass the annual Youth Background Check.

Please allow a minimum of 2 weeks for Background Checks to be completed.
We urge you to work well in advance of any Meet Registration Deadlines in order for this process to complete.
