Safe Sport Training
This event is to get all the parents involved with Safe Sport training from USA Swimming and TSA (Triangle Swim Association), which is under USA Swimming rules and regulations. Safe Sport is training for everyone to be on the same page with spotting abuse or misconduct between adults and kids, kids and other kids, etc. Luckily, since we are just a summer league and most parents stay and hang out at the pool, we have a bit less to worry about, since there are no over night team trips or other things like year round competitive teams do, it means there really is no chance of anyone being alone or in a situation that puts anyone at risk.
With that said, it is still great we all take the training and undersand what to look for, and how to react if a child or adult ever shares they are getting abused or hurt. It's far better to be empowered, than to be caught off gaurd. This won't be discussed with the kids by me or coaches, BUT I encourage you have have a talk discussing with your children how to protect themselves if ever at any time in their life they are in a situation.
All the info for how to take the Safe Sport training will be under the events tab and at the bottom of our home page (www.garnerdolphins.com) under "team functions" , so you can access it any time all season.
