Member safety

Youth on Course is committed to making all members of our community feel protected, safe and supported.

At Youth on Course, it’s our belief that every member of our community should feel happy, safe, and supported — and have the time of their lives while they’re on the golf course.

To ensure that all our partner courses and organizations are upholding the Youth on Course commitment to member safety, we work with the U.S. Center for SafeSport, an independent nonprofit dedicated to building a sport community where participants can work and learn together free of emotional, physical, and sexual abuse and misconduct.

SafeSport covers the protection, prevention, and management of various forms of maltreatment, including bullying and emotional abuse. While SafeSport encompasses many components, its focuses include education and awareness, appropriate policies and codes of conduct, and the independent management of complaints and investigations.

Together, we can prevent maltreatment and abuse.

ITP Sport & Recreation

Our partner in SafeSport is ITP Sport & Recreation, a SafeSport programming and consulting agency and an industry leader authorized by Congress for abuse prevention, education, and accountability. ITP’s mission is to keep young people safe and organizations strong through a concerted focus and effort on preventing maltreatment and abuse in sport and recreation.

It’s both the belief of ITP and Youth on Course that prevention is the key to creating a safe, supportive, and fun environment for young golfers, and ITP supports us in making sure our partner courses make member safety their No. 1 priority.
