The Elmbrook Swim Club strives to make your swimmer's protection and safety our highest priority. By working together as coaches, swimmers, parents, and volunteers we can ensure all USA swimming members are supported in a safe and dependable environment both in and out of the pool.
To that end we are asking EBSC parents and athletes take part in USA Swimming’s online Safe Sport/Athlete Protection training. The Elmbrook Staff takes part in Athlete Protection Training for Coaches much like the parent & athlete courses on an ongoing basis and find them to be very well done and beneficial.
Parents and Athletes can take these courses together or as a family.
To access the course Non-USA Swimming members will need to create an account with USA Swimming – HERE.
Once you have created an account you can log into the USA Swimming Learn Center – HERE.
USA Swimming Members (Coaches, Officials, Athletes) can proceed directly to the Learn Center link.
Once logged into the learn center the USA Swimming Safe Sport classes should appear.
USA Swimming has 3 Recognition Programs. Club Excellence (Performance), Club Recognition (Organization), and Safe Sport (Athlete Protection).
The Elmbrook Swim Club is working diligently to achieve recognition in USA Swimming’s Safe Sport program. Your efforts in taking these parent & athlete training opportunities will assist this effort greatly.
The Elmbrook Swim Club currently is a Silver Medal Club which solely measures performance. The Silver recognition puts EBSC as one of the top 125 performing teams in the nation.
The Elmbrook Swim Club is currently a Level IV Club Recognition which is the highest level in the program recognizing best practices, policies, and organization.
Thank you in advance for your time and effort.
