Teaching Tuesday

With all of the recent media attention on adult misconduct in sport, we decided to highlight Safe Sport in this week's Teaching Tuesday. We have multiple resources available on our website and through our LSC Safe Sport Coordinator. Don't forget, each club also needs to designate a Club Safe Sport Coordinator.

Divisional Meet Information Posted

Meet Information has been posted on the website under the respective event pages for the following Divisional meets: Southwestern and Northern. Not sure what division your club falls under? See the list here.

Zone Coach Application Now Available

Visit the Georgia Swimming website to apply online to be part of the Georgia Zone Team coaching staff. The Age Group Zone Team will be traveling to Midland, TX for this year's competition in August.

Club Safe Sport Coordinators

Each club needs to designate a safe sport club coordinator by March 1. Please email Ceci Christy (ceci30327@gmail.com) with your club's safe sport club coordinator contact information so that we can prepare for the "How to be a Safe Sport Club Coordinator" workshop in April. The coordinator can be an athlete as there are no investigatory duties involved.

Annual Award Nominations

Nominations are open through March 15 for the Betsy Dunbar, Bill Young, and Pete Junkins awards. See the website for details. Golden Peach Award nominations will open later this month.
