The USA Swimming Safe Sport Program is offering free athlete protection training to the parents of member athletes. Parents are a critical component to the overall goal to protecting children from sexual abuse. The comprehensive online programming includes information about how offenders operate; how to recognize and respond to boundary violations, myths and facts about child sexual abuse, and USA Swimming’s Athlete Protection Policies and Procedures.
We hope many Boise Y parents will take advantage of this training. Click HERE for the link to begin the course. Our LSC is Snake River Swimming and our Club Code is BY. The link should take you to USA Swimming's Safe Sport page. Scroll down the page until you see "Take A Safe Sport Course" and choose the athlete course. The course is designed for athletes 12 and Over. There is also a link on this page for Safe Sports for Parents.
