NCYS is embarking on a multi-year strategy to equip organizations with the most up-to-date resources for athlete protection. One in 10 children is abused before their 18th birthday. In a U.S. Center for SafeSports survey, almost half experienced mild harassment to severe abuse. Half of the 3.5M youth injured are preventable.
