Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy

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.


Below you will find all of the materials that USA Swimming has published regarding MAAPP, including answers to FAQs to date.  

Please note that all 18+ year old athletes must complete the  Athlete Protection Training by  June 23, 2019. 18 & over swimmers will not be allowed to compete in a USA Swimming sanctioned meet without completing this training.


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.
