Misconduct Reporting Procedures
USA Triathlon requires reporting of sexual misconduct or ethical misconduct by any coach, race director, support staff and strongly encourages reporting boundary violations, red flag behavior, or any other inappropriate conduct.
Child abuse and child sexual abuse is a crime. If USA Triathlon receives a complaint of sexual misconduct involving a minor, we will report it to the proper authorities. We urge all individuals to do the same.
Out of respect for the importance of this issue and to encourage honest and effective reporting, knowingly false vindictive reporting will not be tolerated.
Providing specific information regarding abuse or suspected abuse helps USA Triathlon to investigate the complaint, and when appropriate, enforce consequences.
If you need to report a violation or have questions about your situation, please contact USAT staff member Linda Cleveland (Linda.Cleveland@usatriathlon.org or 719-955-2810), who can help answer any questions you may have.
