Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy
The US Olympic Committee has required all Olympic Sports to adopt the Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy (MAAPP) by June 23, 2019. MAAPP contains five sections: one-on-one interactions, travel, social media and electronic communications, locker rooms and changing areas, and massage and athletic training modalities.
There are still some unanswered questions (particularly when it comes to how college coaches can contact college recruits), and we will receive more information from USA Swimming and the USOC as they work out those particulars.
