There is a gaping hole in regards to keeping sex offenders out of kids’ sports. The Ted Stevens Amateur Sports Act has a clause in it that National Governing Bodies of sports, in particular USA Gymnastics, believe forces them to allow convicted sex offenders to send child athletes to their sanctioned events. Please sign this petition to amend the Ted Stevens Act to close the loophole:
