USA Fencing is working to increase awareness and reduce the risk of misconduct and abuse in fencing through its SafeSport Program. It takes a team effort to create, monitor and maintain a safe and healthy environment. Parents, you are part of this team. Following are some resources to help increase your awareness and to provide you with tools to protect our athletes and create a positive sport experience.
An online course was developed by the U.S. Center for SafeSport for parents of athletes of all ages. Titled "Parent’s Guide to Misconduct in Sport," this course explains the issues of misconduct in sport and helps parents ensure their children have a positive and safe sport experience.
