USA Triathlon has zero tolerance for abuse and misconduct, both on the race course and off it. We believe that everyone has a role in preventing or stopping abuse in multisport and have partnered with the U.S. Center for SafeSport to provide members with training and resources in doing so.
Every athlete deserves to train and compete in as safe an environment as possible. Thank you for helping us make this a reality.
The U.S. Center for SafeSport requires that certain USA Triathlon members and event participants must complete training to help protect athletes. These SafeSport training requirements are performed through your USA Triathlon member account. If training is required, members will see a banner that reads Invalid SafeSport Entry. Click Renew SafeSport and follow the instructions to take your required course(s).
- Note: you must complete SafeSport Trained or Refresher 1, 2 or 3 to meet the training requirement. You are welcome to review the other SafeSport classes as well, but those
will not satisfy the SafeSport requirement.
Once complete, save a copy of your completion certificate for your records. Email email@example.com with any technical difficulties.

USA Triathlon requires the reporting of sexual, emotional or physical misconduct by any member to either the U.S. Center for SafeSport or to USA Triathlon. If you have reasonable suspicion of sexual misconduct or harassment, child abuse (including child sexual abuse) or intimate relationships involving an imbalance of power, make a report to both the U.S. Center for SafeSport and law enforcement and comply with any other applicable reporting requirements under state law.
To report a concern directly to the Center by phone, please call 833-5US-SAFE (587-7233) or submit an online report.
The U.S. Center for SafeSport has exclusive jurisdiction over allegations of sexual misconduct. The Center also may exercise discretionary jurisdiction over and accepts reports of emotional and physical misconduct (including but not limited to bullying, hazing, stalking and harassment), and MAAPP violations. Reports of emotional and physical misconduct and MAAPP violations may also be reported directly to USA Triathlon via online reporting form or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
