When Trust is Exploited in Youth Sports

Healing after sexual assault & abuse

CONTENT WARNING: discussion of sexual assault & abuse of children

Over the last few years we have heard countless stories of sexual assault and abuse of children at the hands of their coaches, from USA Gymnastics to the world of competitive all-star cheerleading. Unfortunately, not much is changing to stop and prevent the abuse. Join us as we speak with parents, former youth athletes, clinicians and advocates to discuss the grooming methods used to gain the trust of parents, athletes and hear from two former athletes who were sexually assaulted by their coaches.


"Fatima was great! Handled awkward situations with patience and kindness and got the point across. We were all able to hold great open minded conversations."
