South Texas Club Teams:
As the clubs in our LSC begin their registration process for the fall, please use this opportunity to disperse the MAAPP to your membership. The MAAPP is mandated by USA Swimming and requires action from each team. Please make sure you have handled the following listed under the MAAPP Club Implementation Check List.
MAAPP Club Implementation Check List:
- Adopt the MAAPP and update your club’s policy and procedures.
- The policy requires all of club’s members to acknowledge and adhere to the policy in a written agreement This form should be treated with same importance as the USA Swimming Membership Form. The form can be located under the Safe Sport tab on the South Texas Swimming website. Each club will be responsible for maintaining this documentation.
- The MAAPP must be posted on your team’s website.
- Swimmers 18 & over need to complete the Athlete Protection Training in order to compete in a USA Swimming sanctioned meet. The link to the course is located under the Safe Sport tab on the South Texas Swimming website.
I’ll will be following up in September with each club to verify that this has been completed. Should you have any questions please let me know what I can do to assist you.
