The U.S. Center for SafeSport is seeking adult athletes in the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic movement to participate in the center’s 2020 Athlete Climate Survey. The survey is open to athletes 18 years of age or older, who will have the opportunity to share their experiences in sports to help the center better understand the prevalence of abuse and misconduct.
The center intends to use the data to understand how to improve its support of athletes when it comes to preventing and responding to sexual, emotional and physical abuse and misconduct in sports. The survey will be anonymous for all participants and is expected to take 30 minutes to complete.
The survey opened October 6 and will remain available through November 15. Eligible athletes who complete the form will receive a $20 Amazon gift card while supplies last.
The 2020 Athlete Climate Survey is a collaborative effort between a dozen national governing bodies, Paralympic sport organizations, the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee and athlete representatives from various sports. The survey is administered by an independent research team at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro’s Institute to Promote Athlete Health & Wellness to safeguard the privacy and protect the identity of the survey respondents.
