The National Wheelchair Basketball Association (NWBA) joins with the U.S. Center for SafeSport (“The Center”) in its commitment to building a sport community where participants can work and learn together in an atmosphere free of emotional, physical, and sexual misconduct. An effective reporting policy is a key part of the SafeSport program and crucial to preventing abuse.
Duty To Report
All individuals, regardless of membership with the NWBA, are encouraged to report suspected SafeSport violations.

Suspected child abuse and/or sexual misconduct is required to be reported to the U.S. Center for SafeSport AND local law enforcement. Individuals should not attempt to conduct their own investigation. There are no fees for filing a SafeSport report with the U.S. Center for SafeSport or the NWBA.
