Safe Sport Reporting

USA Basketball is committed to creating and maintaining a sport community where all those who participate can work and learn together in an atmosphere free from misconduct.  USA Basketball along with the U.S. Center for SafeSport provide secure ways for individuals to concerns of misconduct or abuse. 

If you have a concern regarding Safe Sport, abuse, misconduct, or a violation of USA Basketball’s MAAPP Policy that you would like to report to USA Basketball, you may do so by completing our online form: USA Basketball Reporting Form, via email at USABSafeSport@usabasketball.com or via telephone at 719-590-4800. 

The U.S. Center for SafeSport

The Center accepts all reports of sexual abuse and child abuse within the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Movement. Report here if you have reasonable suspicion of sexual misconduct or harassment, child abuse (including child sexual abuse), or intimate relationships involving an imbalance of power. The Center also accepts reports of emotional and physical misconduct (including but not limited to bullying, hazing, stalking, and harassment) within the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Movement. Reports of emotional and physical misconduct can also be reported directly to your sport’s national governing body (NGB).

You may submit a report to the U.S. Center for SafeSport here: U.S. Center for SafeSport Reporting or call 833-5US-SAFE (587-7233). The Center is available 24 hours a day, with an operator and Monday through Friday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. (MT).  If you suspect child abuse or neglect, please report it to your local authorities before notifying USA Basketball and/or the U.S. Center for SafeSport. If you are a mandatory reporter, you are required by law to do so. Additional information on when a person must make a report to law enforcement can be found at www.childwelfare.gov

U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee's Office of Athlete Safety

You may also contact the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee’s office of Athlete Safety to report any allegations of abuse.

  • The USOPC will report all allegations of sexual abuse, and emotional, physical or sexual abuse of a minor, to the U.S. Center for SafeSport.
  • The USOPC will refer allegations of emotional or physical abuse, or violations of the Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policies (MAAPP) that don't fall under the USOPC's jurisdiction to the U.S. Center for SafeSport and/or USA Basketball. 

You may report an incident to the USOPC's office of Athlete Safety by calling (719) 866-3869. 

All cases of suspected emotional, physical or sexual abuse of a minor (under the age of 18) must be reported to law enforcement immediately. Filing a report with the USOPC's office of athlete safety, the U.S. Center for Safe Sport or USA Basketball does not satisfy this obligation.

Please note, any report made to USA Basketball or the U.S. Center for SafeSport may be submitted anonymously and at no cost to the reporter. 

It is critical that reporting parties not attempt to evaluate the credibility or validity of child physical or sexual abuse allegations as a condition for or prior to reporting their concerns.
