How to File a Report

USA Fencing Safe Sport Reporting Form
 

USA Fencing recognizes it can be difficult for an athlete, teammate, friend or family member to an allegation of misconduct and strives to remove as many barriers to reporting as possible.

You may remain anonymous if you wish. However, where appropriate, the investigative process may require further input and anonymous reporting may make it difficult for USA Fencing to move forward with an investigation.

USA Fencing requires reporting of physical, sexual or other misconduct by any member and strongly encourages reporting of any concerns relating to safe sport. USA Fencing appreciates your willingness to report inappropriate behavior.

By submitting the report form, you are giving permission to USA Fencing's Safe Sport Program staff to contact you. Out of respect for the importance of this issue and to encourage honest and effective reporting, knowingly making a false or vindictive report will not be tolerated and may be a violation of USA Fencing's Code of Conduct.

A report of abuse, misconduct or policy violation that is malicious, frivolous or made in bad faith is prohibited. Such reports will be considered a violation of USA Fencing’s SafeSport policies and grounds for disciplinary action. Depending on the nature of the allegation, a person making a malicious, frivolous or bad-faith report may also be subject to civil or criminal proceedings.
