Shortly after being called out by Outside the Lines on its affiliation with volleyball coach – and known child predator – Rick Butler, the Amateur Athletic Union has announced that it will conduct an extensive review of its child-protection policies.
CEO Ron Sachs was featured as a guest panelist on yesterday’s episode of ESPN2’s Outside the Lines. Ron offered his insights on the controversy surrounding the Amateur Athletic Union’s policies to protect young athletes.
Additionally, Lauren Book and Ron Book of Lauren’s Kids shared their thoughts on the Amateur Athletic Union’s failure to abide by child protection reforms. “We put our name on a document that said, ‘Things are going to change here,'” Lauren said. “We didn’t give the AAU a get-out-of-jail-free card.”
