ACE EDUCATION and SafeSport Information
Please read carefully
When you log in to your home plate and are ready to take your ACE test a new program was approved by the USA Softball board requiring all persons taking the ACE test to also create a profile on the USOC SafeSport website and take three lessons regarding sexual misconduct, mandatory reporting and emotional and physical misconduct. These lessons will help raise the awareness of our coaches regarding these important subjects facing our society today.
USA Softball leads the way over other softball entities in making sure our players are in a safe secure and learning environment.
When you get to your ace page this is what you will see:

The Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Authorization Act
A new law passed by Congress is aimed at preventing child sexual abuse. The Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Authorization Act introduces new standards that all youth sports organizations must meet, including programs offered by local leagues, churches, schools, camps, and non-profits.
The Act introduces three new requirements:
- Mandatory Reporting Changes
- Prevention Training Requirements
- Prevention Policies Requirements
These requirements may present challenges for organizations that often rely on volunteers.
