U.S. Figure Skating strives to provide a safe environment for its members and to protect the opportunity of its members to participate in the sport in an atmosphere that is free of harassment and abusive practices. The U.S. Figure Skating SafeSport Program provides resources for all members to help identify abuse and misconduct, outlines steps that can be taken to reduce both and offers procedures to respond to them.
There are many positive reasons to participate in figure skating, but like all sports, it can also be an environment where misconduct can occur: emotional, physical, sexual, bullying, harassment and hazing. All forms of misconduct are unacceptable and in direct violation with U.S. Figure Skating rules.
