Coach Sexual Abuse
Serving Victims Nationwide
Children often enjoy playing sports and being part of a team. It is a great
way to achieve success and build character. However, it is possible for
certain coaches to take advantage of innocent children and molest them.
Coaches hold great authority over athletes. Many players believe the only
path to success is following every direction from coaches. This opens
the door for abusive treatment and inappropriate sexual behavior. If you

Possible Signs of Coaching Sexual Abuse
As parents, it is important to learn early signs of sexual abuse or molestation.
Many times, a coach will spend a great deal of time with one particular
child to gain his or her trust. Then, the coach may try to control a child’s
non-practice activities or separate the child from certain friends. When
a coach tries to be alone with a child or buys the child expensive gifts,
it is time to file a report.
Experts explain pedophile coaches test the boundaries before engaging in
sexual behavior. It is vital for parents to recognize the actions before
they become severe. If molestation has already occurred, it is advised
to seek legal representation. At the Doan Law Firm, we take every case
seriously. We understand how common it is for a coach to abuse an athlete.
Throughout the country, approximately 15,000 convicted sex offenders currently
coach children’s sports. When courageous victims tell the truth,
this abhorrent behavior must be punished. Coming forward prevents other
children from being molested as well.
