The United States Olympic Committee (USOC) has developed SafeSport to help raise awareness about misconduct in sport, promote open dialogue and provide training and resources. USA Water Polo has partnered with the USOC to make SafeSport available to all our members. SafeSport seeks to create a healthy, supportive environment for all participants. Through education, resources, and training, SafeSport helps members of the sports community recognize, reduce, and respond to misconduct in sport.
USA Water Polo and the USOC have a zero tolerance policy for the following:
