Upon formal reports to SafeSport and/or local law enforcement, the Sting Soccer Ethics Committee will provide a preliminary disciplinary action, given what information is available at that time, while investigations are underway.

SafeSport is a federal law that requires US sports national governing bodies (NGBs), and organizations that are members of NGBs (member leagues and clubs), to report sexual, physical, and emotional abuse of athletes (adult as well as youth). The law's primary focus is on minor athletes (aged 18 and under), but it also applies to over-18s.
Every Sting Coach, employee, and representative is required to complete the SafeSport training and receive the SafeSport Certification.
