MINOR ATHLETE ABUSE PROTECTION POLICY
This policy prohibits one-on-one interactions between Minor Athletes and (i) any adult member using the Athlete Tracker application (including all adult players, coaches, officials, administrators, and manager/volunteers). This policy applies in areas or situations with an increased risk of abuse or misconduct, including prohibitions for on one-on-one interactions between adults and Minor Athletes using Athlete Tracker electronic communications during travel locally to and from practices or games and during overnight team travel, in meetings or individual training sessions, and in out-of-program interactions.
To best protect athletes from abuse or misconduct in our sport, it is critical that parents of minor athletes are familiar with the policies of Athlete Tracker and monitor to help ensure that interactions between their children and adults in Athlete Tracker programs are in compliance with the rules and regulations for those interactions. Athlete Tracker strongly encourages parents to make their children aware of the Athlete Tracker Safe Sport Program policies concerning interactions between adults and minors.
PARENTS SHOULD NOT PERMIT THEIR CHILDREN TO PARTICIPATE IN INTERACTIONS THAT ARE NOT IN COMPLIANCE WITH ATHLETE TRACKER SAFE SPORT POLICIES. PARENTS SHOULD, AND ALL ADULT MEMBERS OF ATHLETE TRACKER ARE REQUIRED, TO REPORT VIOLATIONS OF THE ATHLETE TRACKER SAFE SPORT PROGRAM POLICIES.
