Education and Training Changes
USAS requires regular and consistent training for all adults who interact with and have direct and frequent contact with minor athletes, including adult athletes.
All USA Swimming non-athlete members regularly complete Safe Sport training, known as Athlete Protection Training. All adult athlete members are required to complete Athlete Protection Training.
All adult members—athlete and non-athlete—will be required to complete the training annually.
