We all are part of promoting a culture of safety through education, listening and speaking up! If you are an athlete who has experienced inappropriate behavior or know of an athlete who has experienced inappropriate behavior, you should report any concerns or violations to U.S. Biathlon and/or the U.S. Center for Safe Sport. To report physical misconduct, emotional misconduct or a MAAPP violation to US Biathlon, please email or use the anonymous SafeSport reporting form linked above.

To report a concern use the Center's toll free phone number: (833) 5US-SAFE (587-7233)
