The increasing incidence of reported child abuse is a special concern for the sport of swimming and the Lakeway Lakers swim team. It is the duty of all Lakeway Lakers coaches, volunteers, and parents to recognize and report child abuse and neglect. Child abuse is damage to a child for which there is no “reasonable” explanation. Child abuse includes non-accidental physical injury, neglect, sexual molestation, and emotional abuse. More information about recognizing, reporting, and preventing child abuse is available on the USA Swimming Safe Sport website (click here).
Our team’s official policy and reporting requirements are here.
Please contact the Lead Volunteer if you have any questions about our policy or need to report an incident.
