THE USTA SAFE PLAY PROGRAM:

The United States Tennis Association Incorporated (USTA) Safe Play Program 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 all individuals to adhere to its Safe Play Conduct, Policies & Guidelines, as well as all other USTA policies, procedures, and practices and applicable external laws and regulations.

The USTA asks that anyone with credible information (first-hand knowledge or reliable information from a knowledgeable third party) report misconduct, maltreatment, or behavior that conflicts with USTA Safe Play.

If you have suspicions of child abuse, child neglect, or child sexual abuse, you MUST immediately report your suspicions to the appropriate authorities. To contact the authorities in your state, please visit HERE before making your report to the USTA.

In addition, any reports of sexual misconduct occurring within a USTA or USTA Sectional program should be made directly to the U.S. Center for SafeSport at www.safesport.org. For more information about how matters involving sexual misconduct are handled, please visit HERE.

REPORTING SUSPECTED VIOLATIONS OF OUR POLICIES:

The USTA has contracted with NAVEX Global, an independent service provider specializing in secure and anonymous reporting hotline services. The services provided by NAVEX Global enable you to report a suspected violation of the USTA Safe Play policies via the NAVEX Global phone service or web site with an option to report anonymously. NAVEX Global will forward your report to the persons in our organization responsible for handling the report, who will do so in a discreet and confidential manner.

While the USTA recognizes how difficult it may be to report an allegation of misconduct, we strongly encourage individuals to include their contact information when making a report. Should you need to contact someone immediately or have questions on how to report, please contact safeplay@usta.com.

Maliciously or vindictively making a report of misconduct is prohibited and may violate state and federal criminal laws as well as civil defamation laws as well as any sanctions issued by the USTA. We take all reports about misconduct and maltreatment matters seriously and will look into each report and follow up when further action is appropriate.
