APT for Athletes 18 and Older
As part of the new Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy, all USA Swimming athlete members 18 years of age or older (Adult Athlete) MUST take the free online Athlete Protection Training certification to retain their USA Swimming membership and be eligible to participate in USA Swimming sanctioned meets, club practices, and other activities.
Those that have or will turn 18 on or before June 23, 2019, must complete this training by June 23, 2019. Others must complete the training within 30 days of their 18 th birthday. This training must be renewed each year to retain their USA Swimming membership.
Athletes may access training here:
· Adult Athletes should go to this page and follow the step-by-step instructions to access the APT modules on the USA Swimming LEARN site. This is the ONLY ACCESS point that ensures an Adult Athlete gets credit for completing the APT certification.
· APT is linked to an athlete’s registration account and should update APT certification status in DECK PASS within 24 hours. Note, athletes must complete all three APT modules including the course evaluations and receive a “DONE” in each for their certification to be complete. Athletes will receive a congratulatory email when they are certified and should save a copy as proof.
For our tracking purposes, commit to this event after you have completed the course.
