USASF Safety Guidelines were formerly publicly available, and were used, and sometimes modified, by companies and individuals who did not go through the training that would allow them to understand, interpret and implement the intent of each guideline. This kind of use, without education, puts athletes at risk.

Our cheer and dance Safety Guidelines, when applied in conjunction with USASF coach credentialing, educational resources, videos, training, and a USASF Certified Legality Official presence at USASF Sanctioned Events, establishes the comprehensive approach to athlete safety that is not only a USASF member priority, but also a member benefit.

At the request of our members, and to preserve the intent that USASF Safety Guidelines are to be implemented as one facet of the full scope of resources and education aimed at fostering athlete safety, the USASF has made the Safety Guidelines available as follows:
