Dear Neptune Families,
USA Swimming has introduced a new policy to Safe Sport - Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy (MAAPP).
We are emailing to let you know that we are going to be implementing, as best we can, the new MAAPP Safe Sport policies at our meet this weekend. The most noticeable change will be within the locker rooms. There will be a curtain separating the showers and changing rooms from the bathrooms within the locker rooms. Please let your swimmers know that athletes 17 and under will be allowed in the shower and changing area. Staff locker rooms will be available for athletes 18 and over. We will have Marshalls and meet staff making sweeps of the locker rooms to ensure they continue to be a safe place for athletes. Deck changing is not allowed during this weekend's meet. Bathrooms will be available for all. Phones behind the blocks and in the locker rooms/ bathrooms are also prohibited.
Thank you for your cooperation and flexibility as we navigate our way around this policy.
We are looking forward to another fun meet!
