The United States Tennis Association is committed to making every tennis experience an enjoyable and memorable one. To do so we rely on the thousands of dedicated volunteers, coaches, officials, members, independent contractors, consultants and staff who contribute in their way to each event or program. To ensure a safe and fun environment for all participants, the USTA has developed "Safe Play." Safe Play embodies the USTA’s commitment to respect and safety for every individual participating in a USTA event or program through the use of screening, education and reporting tools.
The USTA expects individuals to adhere to Safe Play policies and standards, as well as all other USTA policies, procedures, and practices and applicable external laws and regulations. Safe Play consists of the following five requirements and standards:
- Conduct, Policies & Guidelines
- USTA Background Screening
- Education & Training
- Reporting Misconduct, Maltreatment or Violations of Safe Play
- Grassroots Engagement & Communication
