Safe Sport/USA Swimming/PNS are rolling out a new policy: MAAPP (Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy).
This goes into effect on the 23rd of June, 2019. Coach Ben is becoming familiar with the policies now and will post summaries and appropriate documents ASAP.
THERE IS NOTHING YOU NEED TO DO IMMEDIATELY UNLESS YOU ARE AN 18 YEAR OLD ATHLETE (OR ABOUT TO TURN 18)....
If you are an 18 year old athlete or non-athlete member (coaches/officials) you have an immediate job! You must take the Athlete Protection Training before the deadline. This is especially important if you are in the swim meet this weekend, since they will be enforcing the new policy! We have several athletes on the team in this situation, so please do not delay. Training can take around an hour or so.
Stay tuned for more info from Coach Ben...
