Safe Sport

What is Safe Sport?

Safe Sport is USA Swimming abuse prevention effort.

USA Swimming is committed to fostering a fun, healthy, and safe environment for all its members.

The Safe Sport program has a wealth of resources, policies, best practices, tools, and procedures to help empower you to create and maintain a healthy and safe environment for your athletes.

What does that mean for this club?

All non-athlete members (coaches, officials, etc.) are subject to a criminal background check and a pre-employment screening, as well as complete USA Swimming’s Athlete Protection Training.

All member clubs are required to have athlete protection policies in place with regard to travel, electronic communication, and anti-bullying.

Swim clubs have access to an arsenal of resources to assist the club leadership with implementing the best practices guidelines for athlete protection.
