USRowing’s Safe Sport program is designed to assure athlete safety by promoting and enforcing policies and programs that address: bullying, hazing, harassment (including sexual harassment), emotional misconduct, physical misconduct and sexual misconduct (including child sexual abuse and/or grooming behaviors).
Effective January 1, 2022, all participants 18 years of age or older are now required to take SafeSport training on an annual basis. If SafeSport training is not completed prior to attending a regatta, an adult participant will not be allowed to participate.

Access 30 minute Adult Athlete Training:
*This training is for those solely participating as athletes — all other participants, see training instructions below.*
18 and older athletes can access the training by logging into your individual profile on https://membership.
If the enrolled course shows the NGB1 Core course, that course does also meet the requirements, but takes longer and is geared towards coaches and staff. Athletes do not have to complete that course.
