State of CT Public Act No. 21-64 Justice for Abused Children

Public Act No. 21-64 mandates that the Governor’s Task Force on Justice for Abused Children in Connecticut (GTF):
  • develop instructional guidelines for youth coaches on best practices for appropriate interaction with youth athletes;
  • develop child sexual abuse informational guidelines that describe (a) abusers’ grooming techniques, (b) victim behavior, and (c) methods for contacting the appropriate authorities, and (d) methods for victims to tell a parent or other adult if abuse has occurred; and
  • make both sets of guidelines available on the department’s website.
In ADDITION to Safesport, a club MUST
annually distribute a copy of these child sexual abuse guidelines to:
  • each participant’s parent or guardian upon enrollment or registration
  • distribute a copy of the best-practices instructional guidelines to their instructors and youth coaches – volunteer or paid.
Such distribution may occur by electronic mail.
All three documents can be found here: (scroll to the bottom of the page) 
Please note: you must also start doing this for all camp enrollees and all camp counselors and volunteers as well.
