It is important to address any Safe Sport concerns you have. Questions about policies, can be directed to the board or staff. Concerns about interactions between swimmers should be addressed to both board and staff (Example: bullying situation). Concerns about interactions between adults and swimmers, if minor (Example: Billy's dad yelled at my son for false starting during a relay), should be directed to the board . If you are concerned and don't know who to address, see the link at the end of the first paragraph.

From USA swimming rulebook - CHILD ABUSE REPORTING REQUIREMENTS

Reporting must occur when an individual has firsthand knowledge of misconduct or where specific and credible information has been received from a victim or knowledgeable third party. A report to the U.S. Center for SafeSport may be made via telephone at 833-5US-SAFE (587-7233) or online at www.uscenterforsafesport.org/report-a-concern. Various state laws may also require reporting to law enforcement or to a designated child protection agency.306.2 Filing a knowingly false allegation of child abuse and sexual misconduct is prohibited and may violate state criminal law and civil defamation laws.
