USA Swimming has mandated that all teams create Anti-Bullying and Social Media policies before January 14, 2013.
Both Policies are on the "Documents" tab of the STAR Web Site.
These policies were unanimously approved by the STAR Board.
The Coaching Staff will go over these policies with the swimmers on Monday, December 3.
Parents are encouraged to go over these policies with their swimmers as well.
In September, the USA Swimming House of Delegates approved important legislation enhancing existing safeguards for the Safe Sport Program. Two of these pieces, Articles 305.3.6 and 305.3.7, require clubs to implement (1) an action plan to address bullying and (2) a policy guiding electronic communication between adults and athletes, respectively.
