Disabled Sports USA has undertaken a national Sport Protection policy to promote an environment free of misconduct and abuse. To this end, member chapters of DSUSA are required to adopt a written Sport Protection policy that meets the minimum standards of DSUSA, and made publicly available to the chapter’s community.
DSUSA has created a series of Sport Protection templates to facilitate chapters’ policy engagement. The templates below represent a general outline/tool that can be incorporated into your individual Sport Protection Plan. While these tools will help jump-start your work in this space, DSUSA recommends that each organization have its final documents reviewed by counsel familiar with your local requirements and needs.
Contact DSUSA if there is a policy that your chapter requires that is not listed above.
