United States Collegiate Taekwondo

Great message from USAT. As we strive to foster a safe environment in our sport, we have to educate everyone. That means parents, athletes, coaches, referees, anyone. On top of education we have to create a climate where this is everyone’s issue. If you see something, say something. There is no passing the buck or assuming someone else is taking care of it. And if someone mentions allegations to you, there are no options, report it, period.USA Taekwondo and the #NOTINMYSPORT Campaign will be focusing this month on increasing awareness on Grooming. The goal will be to educate the sports community on what behaviors and signs to look for to help prevent grooming from happening to any athlete.

Grooming is a behavior that is often mistaken for "Being Nice" but in reality it has played a big role in many unacceptable behaviors especially with sexual misconduct in sports. It is time to put an end to it. Help educate our athletes on what signs to look for so that they do not fall victim to this unacceptable behavior. Don't stop there! Let's teach and reeducate the coaches, parents, and any adult figure and get them familiarized with the signs that they need to look for to help prevent grooming from happening to any young athlete. Let's protect our athletes, let's make a difference. You may feel like you are over reacting, especially as it can seem like the adult is just 'being nice' to a child, but it is always better to be safe than sorry, and it is always better to STOP abuse before it happens. #NOTINMYSPORT #MakeYourStatement #PutAStopToGrooming #TogetherWeCan

We Want to hear from you tell us your thoughts on grooming and what can be done to help prevent grooming from happening to any athlete?
