Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy!! Please Read!!
June 20, 2019
USA Swimming announced an enhanced set of Safe Sport policies on April 29, 2019, collectively called the Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy (“MAAPP”). The changes stem from requirements imposed on USA Swimming by the U.S. Center for SafeSport.
The changes are required for member clubs and LSCs. The changes must be implemented by June 23, 2019.
Arkansas Swimming is collecting information on all clubs in regards to the MAAPP implementation. Please send a your clubs MAAPP Policy to the Arkansas Safe Sport Chair at [email protected] so it can be filed for you along with how you plan to execute the policy being signed.
As we have previuosly stated, it is incumbent upon us as adults in USA Swimming to adapt our practices to create the appropriate boundaries these policies seek to establish. Arkansas Swimming stands with you in your individual efforts to this policy and will be a resource for you in this effort moving forward. If you have any questions, please let us know.
