Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Authorization Act

President Trump signed the Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Authorization Act on February 14, 2018. The federal law was designed to help prevent sexual abuse in youth sports by creating standards for all youth sport organizations, including programs offered by churches, camps, schools, non-profits, and local leagues.  The act aims to prevent sexual abuse by placing requirements for prevention training, mandatory reporting, and prevention policies.

Philadelphia Insurance Companies, a leading insurer in amateur sports and non-profit organizations, has a summary of the requirements in the law.
