Gymnast Training and Resources

Education is power! Help children learn about body safety and body boundaries, and what to do if they ever feel unsafe. The e-learning modules below were developed by child sexual abuse prevention experts and are tailored to the sport of gymnastics.

The information is presented in a developmentally appropriate way for each age group, and includes interactive videos, games and knowledge checks to keep your child engaged. Parents and caregivers must register their child for each course and are encouraged to complete the modules with their child.
