CYC Sailors and Coach at Spring 2023 Culver Regatta

Both New Trier Sailing and the Chicago Yacht Club require at least one parent of each sailor complete SafeSport youth protection training. 

Here are the steps to take the training:

  1. Have your own or your sailor’s US Sailing membership number available.*
  2. Click this link to review the information about the training.
  3. Click on the the red “Take the Training” box.
  4. Enter the US Sailing membership number and click “Continue”.
  5. Check the box that certifies you are the person associated with the account and click “Continue”.  (This may seem odd, but you will be creating your own SafeSport account next.)
  6. You should now be on a page to register for a SafeSport (not US Sailing) account.  If the name and email that came pre-populated from US Sailing is not your own, edit it, choose a password, and click “Next”.
  7. Follow the usual steps to create an account with SafeSport.
  8. Complete the training.  There are three modules.  Each takes about 30 minutes to complete. They can be done all in one sitting or taken one-at-a-time.
  9. Email NTS your completion certificate.  We will forward it to CYC.

Once complete, certification is valid for two years.

(* If neither of you has a US Sailing membership, email us and we will send the New Trier Sailing membership number to use instead.)
