June 22, 2019
Ultimate Swimming Families,
USA Swimming announced an enhanced set of Safe Sport policies on April 29, 2019, collectively called the Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy (“MAAPP”). The changes stem from requirements imposed on USA Swimming by the U.S. Center for Safe Sport through the USOC. These changes are requirements for membership in USA Swimming and must be implemented by June 23, 2019 by each club and LSC.
Attached you will find the full policy as created by USA Swimming. We ask that all families read and discuss these policies with their athletes. While most of the items covered in this new policy are already a part of Ultimate’s day to day practices, there are a few items we would like to paraphrase and highlight that are more significant changes.
An event page has been created with more information, all swimmers need to accept the event invitation. Please do not hesitate to ask any questions, thank you.
