OUR COMMITMENT TO SAFESPORT POLICY AND PRACTICE

"We don't heal in isolation, but in community." - S. Kelley Harrell

 

Zero Gravity Gymnastics is committed to creating and fostering a safe, positive and empowering environment for girls and young women; regardless of their age, ability, ethnicity or financial situation.

 

Zero Gravity Gymnastics aligns to all policies outlined in the guidelines of the U.S. Center for SafeSport and firmly supports the equality of all girls and women in sports. 

 

SafeSport is a nonprofit organization whose goal is to bring awareness to issues of abuse in youth sports and offers many resources such as guidelines to recognize the signs of abuse and systemic abusive behaviors, training workshops and seminars for the prevention of abuse and provides reporting avenues. Their mission states:

 

“The U.S. Center for SafeSport is an independent nonprofit committed to building a sport community where participants can work and learn together free of emotional, physical and sexual abuse and misconduct. Explore our site for training resources, help and best practices for coaches, parents, athletes, youth and amateur sports organizations in creating your SafeSport environment.”  https://uscenterforsafesport.org/

 

The website provides additional SafeSport policy guidlines, training resources, reporting avenues and clearly outlined definitions of types of abuse and provides examples of behaviors that constitute these types of abuse, including specific information in regards to systemic abusive practices such as “grooming,” stalking, bullying, hazing and harrassment.  The SafeSport website provides reporting options such as:

  • RELATED TO REPORTING
