USA Fencing has partnered with the U.S. Center for SafeSport to offer online SafeSport training for our members. It is a SafeSport requirement for USA Fencing coaches, volunteers, referees, committee members, vendors, staff and those that have regular contact with minor fencers to complete online training on an annual basis. SafeSport training will be required at the time of membership renewal and will be valid for the membership year. Additionally, the online training is offered at no additional cost to all adult members and can be accessed online through your USA Fencing member dashboard at member.usafencing.org

Coach, +CheckEd and +Coach members must first complete the core course that includes three 30-minute modules:

  1. Sexual Misconduct Awareness training
  2. Emotional and Physical Misconduct
  3. Mandatory Reporting

The year following the completion of the Core Training, a 30-minute refresher course will be available through your USA Fencing membership profile and completion of the refresher course will satisfy the SafeSport training requirement.
