US WaterSki Safe Sport Links
Many of you may have seen the emails from US WaterSki surrounding the implementation of SafeSport Training for all active members over the age of 18. You will need to complete this training before participating in any US Waterski sanctioned events, which includes Pool Practices, General Ski Night, Saturday Practices, Learn to Ski events and shows. ***Note – this training is for all active US Waterski Members over the age of 18, even if you don’t participate in any activities with children and is mandatory as of January 1, 2022. If you are a parent/guardian are not an active US Waterski Member and just observe from the shore, you do not need this training***
The Core SafeSport training course is an online training module created by the Center. The Core training course covers Mandatory Reporting, Emotional and Physical Misconduct, and Sexual Misconduct Awareness Education topics, and takes roughly 75-90 minutes to complete. It includes pre- and post-quizzes and a final training certificate.
Completed annually after the Core SafeSport training, the Refresher course is a shorter (20-30 minutes) course designed to refresh your knowledge on misconduct in sport. Refresher courses likewise contain pre- and post-quizzes and a final training certificate.
US Waterski has developed an extensive SafeSport FAQ, and I encourage you to read these responses in addition to the SafeSport Myths & Misconceptions to become more informed.
