Coaching Sexual Abuse and Molestation

Legal represention for victims of coaching sexual abuse and molestation.
Athletic coaches hold a unique position of trust over the young athletes they coach. There is a long standing belief that the coach is always right and that for athletes to succeed, they must do exactly what they are told. This makes young athletes susceptible to not only abusive treatment from coaches but also sexually inappropriate conduct.

The sexual molestation of young athletes by their coaches can occur in any sport and by any coach, no matter their coaching reputation. Sports leagues and organizations are required to protect young athletes who participate in their activities. Besides screening volunteers or paid coaches, these organizations must act quickly when sexual abuse is reported or suspected.

Lawyers Against the Sex Abuse of Children has represented numerous young athletes in sexual abuse lawsuits against their coach and the sports organization that enabled the abuse to occur. Contact us if your child has been abused by their coach. Our coaching molestation lawyers understand the importance of putting a stop to coaches that abuse their position of trust and the organizations that enable them.

Coaching Sexual Abuse Warning Signs
Here are a few coaching sexual abuse warning signs that numerous experts think parents should be looking for:

   * Coach spends time with you in an attempt to win your trust or be a surrogate parent.
   * Your child's coach acts differently with your child when in front of others.
   * Your child's coach attempts to control your child in non-practice activities.
   * Your child's coach attempts to separate your child from their teammates or friends.
   * Your child's coach spends a lot more time with your child than with other athletes.
   * Your child's coach attempts to be alone with your child.
   * Your child receives gifts from your child's coach.

Experts agree that abusive coaches will normally test the boundaries and see how much they can get away with. As a parent, putting up resistance or teaching your child to put up resistance will many times get the coach to back off.
