Flameís of Nebraska Softball Policy on Abuse & Molestation

FLAMEíS ABUSE/MOLESTATION POLICY FLAMEíS will not tolerate the abuse/molestation of any minor participant in a FLAMEíS sanctioned activity. FLAMEíS sanctions athletic events in which it provides rules for play and a tournament structure that leads to season ending tournament opportunities for teams that register to play in FLAMEíS sanctioned events. Because FLAMEíS is not an organizer, it does not, in any way take responsibility for the creation, management or any other activity of the teams (customers) that register to play in FLAMEíS sanctioned leagues and/or tournaments. As such, we encourage parents of youth team participants, the adult team participants, the community organizations who are involved in the organization, creation or management of such teams to investigate and screen the background and character of the individuals who coach, manage, volunteer or otherwise come into contact with such teams and their minor participants.FLAMEís conduct training on the prevention of sexual abuse for their coaches and staff.
