senate Bill S. 534

Should All U.S. Olympic Committee-Recognized Amateur Athletic Organizations be Mandatory Reporters of Sexual Abuse?

Argument in favor

USOC-recognized amateur athletic organizations and all people affiliated with them should be required to immediately report allegations of suspected sexual or physical abuse to law enforcement and have procedures in place to prevent such abuse.

Young athletes are extremely vulnerable to adults and systems surrounding their sports. We need to protect them from exploitation.

Yes! Absolutely! I am a mandatory reporter both as a minister and as faculty of a university. This is low bar, common sense. These athletes deserve justice, and this is a great step to take to ensure that!

Given the Nassar case, it’s very important that all youth sports organizations, up to and including the ones under the auspices of the US Olympic Committee, be especially vigilant and responsive about sexual abuse allegations. A clear reporting requirement is a good step. Vote yes.

Argument opposed

There’s no need for USOC-recognized amateur athletic organizations and the people associated with them to be mandatory reporters, or have other policies in place to prevent the sexual or physical abuse of young athletes.

It seems that the rules are in place, but the people enforcing the rules didn’t do their job. Fire them and they should be brought up on charges for accessories.

Obfuscation. It’s already required. This is legislation so we can all be angry together then feel like something was done. But so far even with me too, nothing real is changing. Head in hands. Worried about college and my daughter.

No new laws that cover already existing crimes. Supervision and management simply need to do their jobs-act on the reports of alleged abuse.
