The U.S. Center for SafeSport Minor Athlete Prevention Policies (MAAPP) went into effect on June 23, 2019.  MAAPP limits one-on-one interaction with minors and requires regular and consistent training for all applicable adults (including adult athletes) who interact with, and have direct and frequent contact with minor athletes.
These policies also apply to the athletes who are 17 turning 18 during an event. To prevent any disruption in sport, the Center also encourages athletes who are 17 turning 18 to take the Core SafeSport Training. Parental consent is required. To access the U.S. Center for SafeSport training, please see instructions below.

Note that training completion is required by the registration deadline of July 15, 2020. SafeSport Training verification will be checked at the time of the event.  Paper or electronic certificates are acceptable.
