SafeSport

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.  
  • If you do not have a current SafeSport certification, or if you'd like to update your certification for upcoming seasons, follow the instructions below.

1 - Go to https://webpoint.usavolleyball.org/
2 - Log into your USAV account (using the same credentials for your membership)
3 - In the navigation menu, click on USAV Clinics and select USAV Coaching Clinics.
4 - Select SafeSport On-Demand: Two-Season Certification
5 - Complete registration for this course
6 - To access the coursework, click on the red "Login to USAV Academy" button.
7 - Should you need to return to your coursework at a later time, just log back into your account and click on the red "Login to USAV Academy" button again.

HELPFUL HINTS
 
1 - It can take up to 24 hours for your SafeSport certification to be updated in Webpoint once you complete the courses.  Do not attempt this certification at the last minute - for example, don't do this coursework on a Friday night before a Saturday morning tournament.  Your certification may not update in time for you to be put on a roster.
 
2 - At the end of each of the three course modules, you have the option to download a certificate of completion for that particular module.  Please download those and keep them for your records.  If there is a question about if you've completed the course, these certifications can offer proof.  You can also download a certificate on the dashboard of your USAV Academy account.  You will also receive an e-mail when your certification is updated in Webpoint.
 
3 - A valid SafeSport certification means that you have completed all of the modules within the training.  There is an introduction in one module, followed by 3 specific course modules.  You must complete all of these to be certified and for your Webpoint profile to be updated.  Completion of anything less than the full course does not grant certification.
