CLIPPERS MAAPP 2.0 POLICY ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
**VERY IMPORTANT** Parents and legal guardians, this is a "must read and agree" document by committing your swimmer(s) to this event.
There is no greater priority than the health, safety and well-being of our athletes and we have always been very attentive to this. Governing bodies and agencies are constantly looking to ensure that risk of abuse on minor athletes is minimized as much as possible by implementing policies that create appropriate boundaries from adults.
In the spirit of the above efforts, the US Olympic Committee
and the US Center for Safe Sport has updated the Safe Sport
policies collectively called the Minor Athlete Abuse
Prevention Policy 2.0 (MAAPP 2.0).
All USA swimming clubs are required to implement this new policy by
September 1, 2021.
What does this mean for Clippers families? All club families and adult athletes (aged 18 and over) are required to read and acknowledge that they agree to follow MAAPP 2.0. Failure to do this will jeopardize you and/or your swimmer(s) membership with USA Swimming and Clippers. Yearly acknowledgment of MAAPP 2.0 is required and will become part of the registration process every fall. One parent from each family can acknowledge MAAPP 2.0 for the entire family, except that any swimmer that is 18 years old will need to individually acknowledge. If you have a swimmer that is 18 years old, please make sure he/she reads the policy. Paper acknowledgement forms will be given to these older athletes at practice.
Clippers MAAPP 2.0 policy is attached to this email and can also be found under the Safe Sport tab on the website.
Questions and concerns can be sent to [email protected]
Please acknowlege on the website by Tuesday, August 31st.
