The U.S. Center for SafeSport wants adult athletes in the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Movement to participate in the 2020 Athlete Climate Survey.
Beginning Oct. 6, athletes 18 years of age or older have the opportunity to share their experiences in sport to help the center better understand the prevalence of abuse and misconduct in sport.
Data collected from the survey will help the U.S. Center for SafeSport understand how to improve its support of athletes when it comes to preventing and responding to sexual, emotional, and physical abuse and misconduct in sport. The survey is anonymous for all participants.
The 30-minute online survey launched Oct. 6 and will remain open through Nov. 15, 2020. The center has developed social media posts so athletes and organizations can help spread the word on their own social media accounts. In addition, eligible athletes who complete the survey 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.
