Volleyball athletes have a great sense of self-worth, demonstrate better collaboration skills and maintain healthier peer relationships. Unfortunately, sports, including volleyball can also be a high-risk environment for misconduct, including physical and sexual abuse. All forms of misconduct are intolerable and in direct conflict with the values of USA Volleyball.
Along with all USOC National Governing Bodies, USA Volleyball has adopted the SafeSport program as required education for members. CEVA requires all adults affiliated with a junior program to take the SafeSport training. This includes all Club Directors, Club Administrators, Head & Assistant Coaches, Team Reps, Chaperones, Officials, etc.
OBTAINING YOUR CERTIFICATION
- Team managers under 18 in the CEVA region do NOT have to complete a SafeSport certification. However, once managers turn 18, they must complete a Background Screen and SafeSport certification within 30 calendar days.
- USAV has transitioned to a two-year SafeSport certification cycle beginning in the 2018-2019 season. There will be three new 30-minute courses to complete to obtain a SafeSport certification, and that certification will be valid the remainder of the current season, and the following season. These new courses are currently available in USAV Academy.
