Safe Sport Events
2016! Our time at Convention this year
was another great success. We had good turnout at all the Safe
Sport sessions and very productive conversations during the
breakout sessions in the Chairs Workshop.
This year we were pleased to co-host the LGBTQ breakfast with
Diversity and Inclusion. It was an honor to have Schuyler Bailar
and his father as our guests for that breakfast.
For the first time this year, Safe Sport hosted a booth in the
exhibit hall. This proved to be a great way to distribute Safe
Sport educational materials and have a place where we could meet
and talk with members one on one.
Thank you to everyone who attended Convention and contributed to
another great time together!

Resource Guide that was released on September 22. This resource
guide is a phenomenal tool that will help coaches, parents and
clubs provide a safe and inclusive environment for all athletes.
This guide is the third in a series of ‘Cultural
Inclusion’ guides following the African-American and
Hispanic/Latino Guide (available in both English and Spanish) that
were released earlier this year. You can find the full LGBTQ
Cultural Inclusion Guide and further information about Diversity

LSC Safe Sport Highlight
Paul Stauder, Indiana Safe Sport Chair!Paul
received the Safe Sport Impact Award at Convention for his ongoing
Safe Sport initiatives in his LSC. Paul initiated Indiana Safe
Sport week where he traveled around the LSC to train athletes and
meet with club leadership to fully implement athlete protection
practices at the club level. The purpose of the Safe Sport Impact
Award is to recognize significant achievement by an individual or
group who has contributed to the fulfillment of the Safe Sport
Committee mission to safeguard all members of USA Swimming from
sexual, psychological, emotional and physical abuse. Paul does just
this and is a great example of what it means to be a Safe Sport
champion. Thanks, Paul, for all you have done and continue to do!

any Safe Sport projects you are working on please let us know. We
would like to give you recognition!
