ABUSE & NEGLECT OF ATHLETES

The Game Over Commission

CHILD USA is investigating sexual abuse in youth sports programs to ensure sports organizations protect our children – rather than harm them.

Child athletes appear to face a higher rate of abuse and neglect than the average child. We’re asking why – and what can be done to prevent it.

We Investigate and devise the best policies for protection: youth sports programs, high school and college athletics, the incidence of sexual abuse and neglect among elite or Olympic-level athletes; as well as professional sports, from the NFL and MLB to the NBA and NHL, which set examples and goals for child athletes.
