Changes to IMPACT and SafeSport this 2017-18 Season...

Please be advised that USAV is modifying IMPACT training effective September 1, 2017.  SafeSport material will no longer be contained within IMPACT, rather IMPACT will solely focus on quality coaches’ training and be shorter in length.  SafeSport curriculum will continue to be required for all adults associated with a junior club, program or event, and will be accessible, free of charge, through the USAV Academy.    Coaches will be prompted in their IMPACT training to follow a link to the new SafeSport curriculum.

The removal of SafeSport from IMPACT will streamline the program and insure that users are always directed to the latest SafeSport content provided by the U.S. Center and the training requirements set forth by the USOC.  As a reminder, SafeSport training will be down during the period September 19 – October 1 as the U.S. Center of SafeSport will be uploading an updated curriculum.  Should you have any coaches who need to obtain SafeSport certification during this service interruption period, please contact us at cap@usav.org.

Sincerely,

Coaching Education Department and SafeSport
