USA Swimming member,
USA Swimming’s top priority continues to be creating healthy
and positive environments free from abuse for all its members. As
part of its commitment to safeguard athletes, USA Swimming has
released an updated Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy
(MAAPP) applicable to all USA Swimming Adult Participants, Zones,
Local Swimming Committees (LSCs) and member clubs. These required
updates come from the U.S. Center for SafeSport
(the “Center”). USA Swimming’s updated MAAPP
document has been approved by the Center and is required to be
fully implemented by USA Swimming, its Zones, LSCs and member
clubs. USA Swimming has set a deadline for those organizations to
implement the policy in full no later than September
1, 2021; all organizations are encouraged to implement the
MAAPP prior to the September 1 deadline.
To help prepare USA Swimming members, there are new resources
Four informative, hour-long webinars, with varying dates and times,
to maximize membership participation.
