Parent & Athlete Safe Sport Online Learning to complete

MAC Families,  

 

While we are in the Wisconsin Safer at Home period, we thought this would be a great time be safer in the sport with USA Swimming's Safe Sport Program.  

 

It is the goal of USA Swimming and Wisconsin Swimming to have every member team Safe Sport certified.  To do this, we need your help.  As a staff, we actively renew our Safe Sport certifications annually.  With the new Safe Sport updates and MAAPP, USA Swimming has extended Safe Sport learning to parents and swimmers.  Every team is tasked to bring Safe Sport education to their team.  

 

How can you help?   Follow the instructions below for either athletes or parents to complete the online safe sport learning.  It is a short online course that will take less than an hour of your time. USA Swimming monitors the completion of the online learning and gives each parent and swimmer recognition for completing the course. We encourage you to complete this by this Friday, May 8.  MAC will send all who participate in the learning this week a MAC logo sticker for your effort.

Alternatively, if you prefer to learn this through a group webinar, USA Swimming Safe Sport is offering Zoom Training.

We thank you for supporting the Safe Sport program for the wellbeing of our athletes!  Please complete this form to record your efforts toward Safe Sport and our athletes and we will send you a MAC logo sticker. If you have any questions about the Safe Sport Program, let us know.  

 

Also, please know how much we miss this time apart!  We continue to work with our pools and plans for a safe re-entry.  Shane and Janis have been actively involved with leadership groups within USA Swimming and Wisconsin Swimming to phase back towards the water in the upcoming weeks. We have several scenarios possible and will communicate them with you as soon as we are able to.  Until then, our coaches continually meet online to plan daily workouts, webinars and new training options. We want to keep you healthy and strong until we can all return to the water.    

 

Thank you!  

We are MAC!
