There is no doubt that all of us have been forever changed by the recent Larry Nassar hearings. I was in the courtroom to listen to the incredibly courageous women explain in vivid and painful detail the impact he had on their lives.
Their powerful voices will stay with me for the rest of my life. I commit to you that I will keep their words and experiences at the core of every decision I make, every day, as the leader of this organization. Their stories have broken my heart, but also strengthened my resolve. The best way to honor our athletes is to ensure that we do everything we can to prevent this from happening again by making bold decisions and holding ourselves to the highest standards of care.
In 90 days, here are just a few of the bold decisions and actions we have taken. Fully supporting both the USOC and Congressional independent investigations and the new federal law regarding safeguarding amateur athletes.
Creating an Athlete Assistance Fund, in cooperation with the National Gymnastics Foundation, that provides our athletes who are survivors of sexual abuse the needed financial resources for counseling services. Making reporting of abuse easier with a dedicated toll-free number SAFEemail address safesport usagym.
Amending the bylaws to support the cultural commitment to athlete safety and provide a basis for further developing our safe sport programs and governance.
Academic District Meets — University Interscholastic League (UIL)
Continuing our Listening Forums and outreach to as many of our survivors, athletes and member clubs as possible to help guide USA Gymnastics policies and procedures. Educating and training our staff and members on the new Safe Sport Policy, where I am pleased to report that our staff is percent safe sport compliant.
We realize many of you have questions about the financial situation, sponsors, pending litigation, National Team Training Center and others. We are constantly looking at how we are positioned to address the goals and needs of the organization. As we talk about fundamental change, this includes looking at our structure, our programs, our staff, our gymnastics community and other important factors. While we continue to evaluate the organization from top to bottom to fit the needs and mission of the organization, we understand the financial implications of doing that without impacting quality.
We are very mindful of the quality of our programs, and it is not our intent to affect the ability of our athletes to train and compete at the highest level. We are confident that we will have and enlist the financial support necessary to make appropriate changes for building a culture of empowerment. Now is the time to continue to show our strength and function with a business as usual approach. As your elected representatives of Region 7 — your Committee will continue to put the athletes, coaches, club owners, parents, and all associated with Region 7 as the top priority as we move forward!
We will also continue to update you with any new information we receive in a timely manner. I will be happy to address any concerns, to the best of my ability, that they might have. We look forward to incredible season of gymnastics and are excited to see it all come together at the invitational, State and Regional meets this year.
Region 7 Strong, JBortz7rac gmail. I understand many of you are concerned about your state and regional funds.
