Notice: As of 12/18/2019, USA Softball, in accordance with Federal Law and USOPC Guidelines, has adopted a policy that ALL Coaches & Participants (not inclusive to players) 18 years and older MUST complete both a background check and SafeSport before participation in any USA Softball youth (JO) play. Registrations (not inclusive to players) WILL NOT BE APPROVED until the background check and SafeSport requirements are met.
This is done by visiting RegisterUSASoftball.com, and following the instructions under Background Check & SafeSport. IF you completed SafeSport with another organization, please log into your profile & add you USA Softball as an affiliation with your Member Number (Found on your Homeplate in RegisterUSASoftball.com). Background Checks MUST be completed by USA Softball, no outside Background Checks are allowed.
For all players and members 17 years and under (minors require parental consent), we would like to strongly encourage participation in some form of sexual abuse training. Examples can be found at www.athletesafety.org. It is the hope of USA Softball that we can empower our members by increasing awareness of the signs of abuse. Thank you all for your continued support!
