If you believe a U.S. Center for SafeSport or USA Archery policy has been violated, we encourage you to submit a complaint.
The following kinds of grievances may be filed by USA Archery (“USAA”) or with USAA under Article XV of the USAA Bylaws (a “Complaint”):
Any current or former member, or USAA (a "Complainant" or “you”) who believes themself/itself to be aggrieved by any action of USAA or by one of its members, may file an Administrative or Right to Compete Complaint with USAA. If the Complainant is a minor, the Complaint may be initiated by such minor’s parent or legal guardian. To be considered for resolution through these procedures, if you are the Complainant you must:
A Complaint that is not filed in accordance with this Section shall render the filing void.
To read more about Filing a Complaint and the disciplinary process, please refer to the USA Archery Disciplinary Proceedings and Grievance Policy. All individuals should read this policy prior to filing a formal complaint.
Except in the cases of an expedited procedure, you must pay a filing fee of *$250 if you are an individual and $500 if you are an organization. *A Complainant may request a waiver of the filing fee by emailing the Board of Justice at [email protected]. There are no filing fees for ANY SafeSport Complaints.
Retaliation includes threatening, intimidating, harassing, coercing or any other conduct that would discourage a reasonable person from engaging or participating in a disciplinary proceeding and/or grievance process. Retaliation against anyone is prohibited and may be present even where there is a finding that no violation occurred. Retaliation can be reported as described above in the same way as any other policy violation and may lead to serious consequences including termination of employment or participation for anyone involved in retaliation.
Allegations made in bad faith may also result in disciplinary action.
