Following the Safe Sport Authorization Act of 2017 to protect young victims from sexual abuse/molestation and safe sport, the SJJIF has partnered with Safe Sport Background Checks.
Background checks are essential to protecting the safety and security of youth sports/activities and should always be a first step.
Safe Sport Background Checks is a background screening company for sports that provides background information from trusted sources with federal law enforcement experience conducting background checks.
To assist with the safety of our youth within the BJJ community Safe Sport Background Checks is now providing background checks for the BJJ community for only $6.80. All you have to do is enter BJJ as your “Organization Code”.
The SJJIF would like to thank Safe Sport Background Checks and ask all coaches, black belts, event staff and volunteers to take this step for the safety of BJJ and its athletes. Click HERE and get your background check today.
The mission of the SJJIF is to unify and organize existing Sport Jiu-Jitsu, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and Jiu-Jitsu national and/or territorial federations that share the vision of reaching Olympic greatness while preserving the unique history, culture, philosophy, and lineage of our sport.
The SJJIF believes that together, the SJJIF with its National Federations and members, will continue to develop the growing network of likeminded members who envision greater opportunities for our athletes and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as we believe that our athletes deserve an equal right to Olympic greatness!
Together, we will prove that we are a stand-alone sport and gain recognition and admittance into the Olympic program as a competition event of the Olympic Games, Paralympic Games, Deaflympics and in all other games of the Olympic cycle.
