We abide by and adhere to all USFS SkateSafe and the U.S. Center for SafeSport regulations, guidelines, and protocols. Please read through all of the documentation below. The SafeSport certification is free and doesn’t take long to complete.

If you have already completed the SafeSport certification and background check, you can upload your documents HERE.

*Please do not attempt to initiate the background check process by going to the NCSI directly. The 8-digit code required to complete the process automatically generates when the background report is initiated through a USFS member’s profile. For more information, please click HERE

**Please also note that some of the individual technical issues or questions that may arise during the Safe Sport training and background check process may be better addressed by U.S. Figure Skating SkateSafe Compliance specialists. For help completing the entire process, please contact SkateSafe HERE
