The TWST Swim Club and its Board of Directors, along with USA Swimming and Niagara LSC, are committed to providing a safe, caring and friendly environment for all of our members through our Safe Sport Program.
The TWST Board is working on getting certification from USA Swimming through their Safe Sport Program. There are several requirements that the Board can fulfill internally, but we need the support of our TWST families to meet two (2) categories externally. The requirements needed for Safe Sport Training --- 1. Parents and 2. Swimmers/Athletes 12 years and older to complete some online education on the USA Swimming web site.
To encourage club participation, the Board has created the following incentive program for the upcoming holiday break from 12/22/18 – 1/7/19: Any swimmer who completes the online safe sport training and brings in a print screen from the web site to their coach that indicates completion, will be entered into a drawing to win one of ten (10) $15 Regal Gift Cards. Similarly, for the parents, those who complete the training and bring in their verification to a coach will be entered into a drawing for ten (10) parents to receive 1 hour of credit to their volunteer requirement for this season. Parents of swimmers 11 and under are encouraged to complete the training and can also be entered into drawing upon completion. For more information, you can look on the web page under News to get complete instructions or email Jim Ronald with any questions @. Please communicate this to your family members.
When your training is complete – please follow these two (2) steps to receive the credit
1. Print out the completion screen/page when you finish and give to your coach to be entered in the drawing.
2. Send an email to Jim Ronald (firstname.lastname@example.org) confirming your completion and it can be recorded for our internal records.
To all those parents and swimmers that have completed their training, the Board Thanks You for taking the time to complete these training videos.
