Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy MAAPP 2.0

"USA Swimming’s top priority continues to be keeping our athletes safe. No form of abuse, including child sexual abuse, has a place in our sport. As a part of our continued commitment to safeguarding our athletes, USA Swimming has enacted enhancements to our Safe Sport policy and education requirements." -USA Swimming

The items in this section will explain and provide material set forth as education and requirements for compliance with the USA Swimming Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy [MAAPP]. All this information reflects the latest policy updates for compliance with MAAPP 2.0 [August 30, 2021].
