ATHLETE A follows a team of reporters from The Indianapolis Star as they investigate claims of abuse at USA Gymnastics, one of the nation’s most prominent Olympic organizations. Two years later, an Olympic doctor is behind bars, the US Congress is demanding answers and hundreds of survivors are speaking out. Equal parts devastating and inspiring, the film reveals the culture of cruelty that was allowed to thrive within elite-level gymnastics, the attorney fighting the institutions, and most importantly, the brave athletes who refuse to be silenced, fought the system and triumphed. Since the film’s release on Netflix, it has sparked a global movement of athletes stepping forward to share stories of abuse and call for change.

We are gathering together to discuss this important film, and what we can do to enact lasting change including what YOU as a coach can do moving forward. The webinar will include a panel discussion and Q&A.
