Camp Randall Rowing Club strives to create a healthy, supportive environment for all participants. We recognize athletes can only reach their fullest potential when they feel safe. This safety extends to all aspects of the sport of rowing, both on and off the water. CRRC is committed to implementing USRowing SafeSport policies and procedures as established by the US Olympic Committee. These policies and procedures protect participants from all types of misconduct and abuse including bullying, hazing, harassment and physical, emotional and sexual misconduct and abuse.

SafeSport Online Training
CRRC requires that all members of Board of Directors, coaches, staff members and chaperones complete SafeSport online training. This training program teaches the nature of misconduct in sport: how to recognize it, prevent it and how to take action. Training can be done in segments, returning to training at your convenience. Once certification is complete, down load certificate and email a copy to CRRC Administrator or other appropriate committee member.
Educating your coaches, parents, volunteers and leadership is a critical component to a successful plan. The USOC Center for SafeSport has developed a new, online training program and website as of January 15, 2018.
