NATIONS FASTPITCH ABUSE & MOLESTATION POLICY
Nations Fastpitch sanctions teams and provides rules for league and tournament play. Nations Fastpitch does not organize teams,
select or approve coaches, players or volunteers for these teams. Nations Fastpitch strongly recommends that all parents
of youth participants, as well as league officials, thoroughly check into the background and character of anyone (coaches,
volunteers, or other individuals) that has contact with any minor participant or volunteer of their team or league.
ABUSE & MOLESTATION REPORTING & RESPONSE POLICY
Nations Fastpitch does not in any way allow or tolerate the abuse of children. If you know or suspect any child abuse
(including sexual abuse or molestations) you must report it immediately to Nations Fastpitch at (877) 259-1150.
Nations Fastpitch will conduct an investigation, keeping the safety of the children as the first priority. Knowing of instances of
abuse and not reporting them may be grounds for dismissal and may result in legal liability. Nations Fastpitch will then
notify the proper authorities regarding the allegations. Nations Fastpitch has the right to immediately suspend the accused
party from participation in any Nations Fastpitch activity pending the outcome of the investigation.
