Brief Safe Sport Survey results needed by 12/12

Hello coaches,

I am contacting you as Indiana Swimming's Safe Sport Coordinator on behalf of the Safe Sport office at USA Swimming with a request that won't take up much of your time, and will go a long way toward helping us reach our goal of ensuring our athletes enjoy the full benefit of their swimming experience.

USA Swimming Safe Sport has put together two surveys - one for coaches, and one for athletes aged 12 and over. There are 22 questions on the coach survey, and 13 for athletes - about 10 minutes worth if you just complete the multiple choices offered. Of course, if you want to write in comments, we want that feedback, too. We are hoping to gain a better understanding of how Safe Sport programming is received by our swimming community, and to make it better. So your input is very important.

Please take the survey and encourage your fellow coaches to do the same. Do it today. And please encourage your athletes to do the same.

The links to both surveys are posted here, as well as in the instructions below.
