<h2>USTA Safe Play</h2>
<h1>education and training</h1>

Education and training are key components to establishing a safe and fun environment for those involved in USTA programs and events. The USTA has adopted the United States Olympic Committee’s online training module as its education and training tool for Safe Play. In addition, the USTA encourages everyone participating in its programs and events to watch the online training module produced by the USOC. This training is a useful tool for disseminating valuable information in regard to procedures to follow to keep our play environment safe.

Accessing the Online Training Module
 
In order to access the training, you must first create an account. Here are step-by-step instructions:

1.  Go to http://training.teamusa.org, and click on "Register."

2.  Fill in the required fields that follow. Please note your organization as “US Tennis Association” and click "Save." You now have an account and can begin taking the training by clicking on either "Discover Courses" or “Store” from the main navigation and then selecting the SafeSport course. If you are taking the training for USTA Junior Team Tennis, Net Generation, or to become a USTA Certified Official, select the course that is titled, “USTA Jr. Team Tennis, Net Generation Providers and Officials SafeSport.” Then proceed as follows:

Select “Add to Bag,” then “Checkout” and “Place Order.” Then you will be able to activate the course by selecting “Activate” under your Order Details. The course is free.

If you do not have time to complete the course during your visit, don’t worry; it will remember where you left off, and you can pick right back up there when you return. Depending on your knowledge and skillset, the SafeSport training will take from 90-120 minutes to complete; the USTA Jr. Team Tennis, Net Generation and Officials SafeSport course will take from 30-35 minutes to complete.

Educational Resources

SafeSport Parent

The USTA has adopted the USOC’s SafeSport Parent course that addresses important topics around recognizing, preventing and taking action against misconduct in sports, from a parent perspective. This free course is not mandatory but is recommended to parents so that they can take an active role in helping to create safe and positive sports environments for their child.

To access the course, please register at http://training.teamusa.org (if you have not done so already) by filling in the required fields and noting your organization as “US Tennis Association” and selecting “Save.”  Under “Store,” select the “SafeSport Parent” course.

Select “Add to Bag,” then “Checkout” and “Place Order.” You will then be able to activate the course by selecting “Activate” under your Order Details. This course is free and is not mandatory.

If you do not have time to complete the course during your visit, don’t worry; it will remember where you left off and you can pick right back up there when you return. Depending on your knowledge and skillset, the SafeSport Parent course will take about 90 minutes to complete.
