Dear Senator_______________,

KEY REASONS COACHES ARE NOT REPORTED FOR SEXUAL ABUSE

I support S. 1877. but it needs further amendment.

The 1st Duty of the Coach is Care for the Child while the Coach has Custody and Control of the Child during School and Non-School Sports, Recreation and Exercise (SRE) Participation; The Coach is called the Caretaker (Caregiver)

The legal Role of the “Coach Substitute Caretaker” in SRE has not been properly authored in Section 3, Paragraph 2. of CAPTA 2010 and then issued, published and promulgated for Awareness to general public

Children will Self-Report, Doctors and Health Care Personnel will Report, other Coaches, the entire Athletic Community and the general public will most likely Report Child Sexual Abuse and Physical and Psychological Abuses when they realize and fully understand and have been educated about the Duty of the “Coach-Substitute-Caretaker”.

Additionally, Coaches will be less likely to be Blind-Sided with Criminal and Civil Litigations once Coaches realize their Standard of Care, Complete Role and Code of Conduct for Children Participants in SRE.

Please include the following amendment language (A) below to the definitions and to the S.1877 amendment listed in (B) below.

THE FOLLOWING PROPOSED AMENDMENT (A), IS A KEY SOLUTION TO CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE OF ATHLETES AND PARTICIPANTS IN SPORTS, RECREATION AND EXERCISE (SRE)

• {the Following is a Proposed additional Public Health Amendment to Section 3. Paragraph 2. an innovation by Athlete Safety 1st as suggested in 2005 by the U.S. Surgeon General. The New Language is Capitalized and a recommended addition to S. 1877 described below}:

(A) any recent act or failure to act, on the part of a parent or caretaker, “INCLUDING COACH SUBSTITUTE CARETAKERS OF SCHOOL AND NON-SCHOOL SPORTS, RECREATION AND EXERCISE”, that results in death, serious physical or emotional harm, or sexual abuse or exploitation, or an act or failure to act that presents an imminent risk of serious harm; or
