Triangle Figure Skating Club of North Carolina 

SafeSport

SafeSport is the Olympic community’s initiative to recognize, reduce and respond to misconduct in sport.  US Figure Skating has adopted SafeSport as a means to strive to provide a safe environment for its members and to protect the opportunity of its members to participate in the sport in an atmosphere that is free of harassment and abusive practices. The six primary types of misconduct are:

  • Bullying
  • Harassment
  • Hazing
  • Emotional Misconduct
  • Physical Misconduct, and
  • Sexual Misconduct, including Child Sexual Abuse

It is everyone's responsibility to be alert to potential SafeSport issues. 

  • For issues and concerns that you feel violate TFSCNC's code of conduct, report your concerns to a TFSCNC board member or our SafeSport chair, Terry Schnurr.  Your concerns will be taken seriously, and any conflicts will be addressed in accordance with the club's conflict resolution process stated in our bylaws.
  • While you are always welcome to discuss your concerns with a board member or our SafeSport chair, you should report the incident to U.S. Figure Skating Skating by emailingsafesport@usfigureskating.org.
  • If observed or suspected physical or sexual abuse may be occurring, contact your local child protective services office or law enforcement agency so the proper professionals can make an assessment.
