What is Safe Sport

USA Swimming is committed to fostering a fun, healthy ,and safe environment for all its members, and in 2010, it formally implemented a comprehensive Safe Sport program to respond to and prevent instances of abuse and misconduct within the sport of swimming. Since then USA Swimming Safe Sport has worked tirelessly to educate members, put policies in place and empower LSCs and clubs to create the best possible environments for all members.

USA Swimming has on-line Safe Sport courses for both parents and minor athletes.  - Scroll down to "Parent/Athlete Education".
