Former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar and the heartbreaking testimonials from former gymnasts are a black eye for the prestigious sports organization. With the organization in disarray and officials letting a monster like Nassar prey on girls for years, there is no reason to trust USA Gymnastics with your children anytime soon. Still, with new leadership and heightened awareness, others believe your child be safely active in the sport. What do you think? 🤸

Larry Nassar preyed and assaulted girls in USA Gymnastics and the organization did nothing about it. How can any parent trust an institution after this? 

Over 100 girls came forward and told stories of their sexual abuse at the hands of Nassar over 20 years. The only way that is possible is because of system-wide complicity and an effort to stay silent to save face. Any organization that prioritizes their own reputation rather than the safety of the children they are responsible for deserves to burn.

There is no way any parent to allow their children to participate in USA Gymnastics.

USA Gymnastics did a terrible thing by letting Nassar use his status in the organization to abuse children. He is going to be put in prison for a long time and three board members quit in light of these disgusting crimes. This housecleaning shows the organization is doing its best to learn from their mistakes and change for the better. 

Because Nassar's case has shined a bright light on USA Gymnastics, the group will be more aware and more accountable for its actions moving forward. With all eyes on USA Gymnastics now, it should be safe for your child to pursue his or her dreams in the sport.
