Safe Sport Recertification

                                                                                                                       

TWST SWIM CLUB is in the process to recertify as a Safe Sport Team. This is a requirement which is recommended by USA Swimming, Niagara LSC and by the Board of Directors of TWST are committed to fostering a fun, healthy and safe sport environment for all its members. We all must recognize that the safety of swimmers lies with all those involved in the sport and is not the sole responsibility of any one person at the CLUB, LSC or NATIONAL LEVEL.

We all have a role to play in creating a healthy setting for our sport. The USA Swimming Safe Sport raises awareness about misconduct in our sport, promotes dialogue, and provides training and resources. When we work as a team, we can build a plan to make swimming safe-for everyone.

Parents, Athletes and Coaches, we need your help in our Club reaching recertification. Below are links to online training/education for parents, athletes and coaches. We need to have these completed by our membership to reach our Safe Sport goals by the end of January 2021. Please take the time to take these courses, either online or attending a zoom meeting.

Must have a USA Swimming ID or create a USA Swimming ID
