USA Swimming Safe Sport Incentives
June 2, 2020
I have exciting news to share! This past weekend Safe Sport had its 6 hour LSC and Zone Workshop via zoom.
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 can.
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.
