As of July 1st, all USA Wrestling member coaches and/or officials must complete SafeSport training. This is in concert with what was changed in advance of the 2017-18 membership season, where anyone wishing to become a member coach and/or official must have completed this training.
Though many of our member coaches and officials have completed their SafeSport training as a requirement of the initial change last fall, we still have approximately 6,000 of these members who are in the second year of their 2-year membership and thus were not prompted to complete this before our mandate went into effect. All of these members must complete their SafeSport training in advance of July 1st or the membership will be deemed inactive for the last two months of the membership season.
For those who are in need of SafeSport training, below are the steps one can take to complete this.
· Set up/log into account at www.usawmembership.com (please note that if one has not been in USA Wrestling’s membership system since August 2017, they will need to set up an account)
· Claim profile (this can be done using user’s USAW ID or first name, last name, state, and date of birth)
· Access SafeSport training from profile or by clicking https://safesport.org/authentication/register?token=a62447d3-d54f-493f-8396-44d958b3d94e (please note that when asked for “membership number,” the user should enter his/her USAW ID
· Once an individual has successfully completed the three modules in the SafeSport training, their profile will be automatically updated.
