Reporting of Inappropriate Behavior
Every U.S. Ski & Snowboard member must report suspected violations of the SafeSport Code. If you suspect that an athlete is experiencing misconduct of a sexual nature, call the U.S. Center for SafeSport's hotline at 833-5US-SAFE (and local child protection authorities if the athlete is a minor) and/or CLICK HERE to Report a Concern.
If you doubt whether conduct is occurring, please err on the side of reporting. Conduct that does not involve sexual conduct but which may violate the SafeSport Code must be reported to either the Center or U.S. Ski & Snowboard by CLICKING HERE and completing an online form or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
