Child Athlete Sexual Abuse and all other forms of Athlete Endangerment and Maltreatment and failed Reporting of these unlawful behaviors occur while Children are Participating in Sports, Recreation and Exercise (SRE) administered by Athletic Clubs, and Extracurricular School and non-School SRE programs.

It is imperative that everyone concerned with Prevention of these abnormal behaviors understands the Forensic Definition of Child Athlete Abuse Syndrome to assure that all are on the same page:

Child Athlete Abuse Syndrome (CAAS) is a Short Title for a Clustering of Child (<18) or Youth (15-24 United Nations definition) Athlete Serious Injury, Disease and/or Death secondary to: ► Physical endangerment, maltreatment and/or abuse ► Psychological (Emotional) endangerment, maltreatment and/or abuse ► Sexual Abuse ► Failed child custodial protection ► Negligent care giving supervision ► Human rights violations ► That were inflicted, caused, created, or allowed to be inflicted, caused, created, directly or indirectly by the Problematic Coach, including the Strength Training, Conditioning and other specialty Coach, Problematic Parent or other Problematic Caretaker Person who has Child and Youth Athlete custodial protection, supervision, care and control during Sports, Recreation and Exercise Participation ► Failure to report the morbidity and mortality to Authorities is Illegal by mandated reporters. [1.] [6.] ► In most United States, Children are minors when less than 18 years of age. ► The United Nations define Youth as persons between the ages of 15-24. Child Athlete Abuse Syndrome and Cruelty to Children, medical-legal conditions, in SRE are matters of particular importance to Doctors and Health Care Personnel and should be priority and urgency matters of U.S. Federal and State Governments. CAAS summons all Doctors and Health Care Personnel into action for the Awareness and Prevention of these Child Athlete Preventable, Not-Accidental morbidities and mortalities. Likewise all Parents, Coaches, the entire Athletic Community, Athletic Program Administrators and government officials should be summoned. Most don't heed the summons. Coaches, Parents and Doctors have been called-out as the primary culprits for these abnormal behaviors by conscientious, concerned Doctors and advocates for Prevention.

George Miller asks GAO to Expand Investigation into Child Abuse Reporting Laws to Include Athletics, Extracurricular Activities “WASHINGTON – In light of recent reports of sex abuse of student athletes at the hands of coaches, U.S. Rep. George Miller (D-Calif.), the senior Democrat on the House Education and the Workforce Committee, today asked the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) to investigate youth athletic clubs’ handling of child abuse allegations. This would be part of an ongoing investigation by GAO, launched at Miller’s request last year, into the weaknesses in reporting laws and policies in the wake of the child sexual abuse scandal at Pennsylvania State University and abuse scandals at other schools. “Recent reports about the abuse of student athletes participating in public and private swim clubs have raised a number of new concerns about whether we have adequate laws and policies in place to prevent and address such abuse,” wrote Miller. “Accordingly, I write today to supplement my July 2012 request to include information about the prevalence of abuse among student athletes and the manner in which such abuse cases are reported, investigated and resolved.” “Last year, Rep. Miller asked the GAO to investigate whether existing laws and policies adequately prevent abuse of children in schools or on school campuses. GAO has previously identified many instances of the negligent and abusive use of seclusion and restraint techniques in our nation’s schools, which in some instances resulted in the death of a child. Also, GAO has reported to the committee on disturbing practices by some schools whereby school employees with histories of sexual misconduct have been passed from one school to another where they were free to continue abusing other children. [Jun 18, 2013 Issues: Labor, Wages and Benefits Committee on Education and the Workforce] If victims, witnesses, coaches, doctors and anyone with knowledge do not REPORT the crime, Child and Youth Athlete Abuse will rampantly continue. Most Reporters surface during victims' adulthood. Another dynamic, possibly unknown to many, is that some believe sexual activity, alone or in pairs, drives internal naturally secreated athleteic performance hormances and neurontransmitters, testosterne, cortisol, dopamine etc. I do not have evidence to support or refute the claim, but some believe and, as you can imagine, convince others, even if not true. Child and Youth Athlete Sexual Abuse is a horrific battleground i.e. sexually transmitted diseases, HIV, gonnorrhea, D and C's, herpes, incompetant cerviix etc. pregnancy.
