USA Swimming Safe Sport
USA Swimming will be announcing incentives for clubs achieving
Safe Sport Recognition. We were asked not to disclose the details
of the incentives as they will be announced with a splash in a
couple of weeks. I will share as much information as I
If you want to receive one or both of the incentives your
club must be one of the first 1500 clubs nationwide to achieve Safe
Sport Recognition. Currently, there are 365 clubs that are Safe
Sport recognized. There are a total of 3,200 clubs in the United
States. But, 500 more clubs have started the process. So if
you are interested, you need to get off the block and finish before
another 1,100 clubs finish before you.
One incentive is financial. The other involves a visit. Your club
will be disappointed if you are not one of the first 1,500.
Thus far, we have 12 Safe Sport recognized teams in Georgia so
these clubs will receive the incentives. I would love to have every
club Safe Sport Recognized by the end of June to ensure you receive
the incentives. Please contact me to talk about what you need to
make this recognition happen for your club.
Thanks so much.
