Report Child Abuse - National Hotline: 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453)
Nationwide, the statistics on sexual child abuse are staggeringly high.  As a company and individuals, DGS is driven to keep our sport free from abuse of all types.  To help accomplish this, we have developed a program called Keep Kids Safe. The Keep Kids Safe program will generate funds through product sales to be donated to a campaign of our choosing that directly educates about abuse prevention and/or directly provides assistance for prevention.  We highly recommend your businesses participation in a certification program called Stewards of Children by Darkness to Light.  Darkness to Light is an organization that teaches how to recognize the signs of abuse and what folks can do to help a situation. DGS has participated and recommends it.  See USA Gymnastics Clubs Cares program – FREE for the month of April.  See also the NEW course offered “Recognize and Respond” for USA Gymnastics University credit. 

Are you aware that one in four girls and one in six boys are sexually abused before the age of 18?
We must pay attention because millions of kids under the age of 18 are involved in sports and most of our gymnasts in this country fall into that age range.  The gymnastics community has a great opportunity to influence and reach coaches and administrators who have direct daily contact with children in gymnastics.  Please help.

TIPS FOR A STRONG, HEALTHY FAMILY:

  • Create a strong routine at home to help everyone stay on task and know what's next.
  • Establish house rules that everyone follows even Mom, Dad and visitors.
  • Talk with your kids about those tough subjects like drugs, sex, and bullying.

  • Sit down with your child during homework time and learn what they are learning.
