SAFE SPORT - Parent & Athlete Courses
WE REALLY NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE OUR CLUB A BETTER, SAFER, &
MORE PROTECTED PLACE FOR OUR MEMBERSHIP TO THRIVE!
USA Swimming has a program called “SAFE SPORT”. USA Swimming is committed to safeguarding all of its members with the welfare of its athlete members as top priority. Safe Sport is USA Swimming’s comprehensive abuse prevention program and provides tools for swim clubs to educate their members and intervene in risky situations.
We, Layton Surfers Swim Team, fully endorse and support USA Swimming’s Safe Sport and Safety programs by helping to provide countless resources for our club members on our website.
OUR GOAL, AS A TEAM, IS TO BECOME A “SAFE SPORT RECOGNIZED” CLUB
BY USA SWIMMING!
In order to do this, certain requirements must be met. Some of which include learning exercises for our swim parents and athletes.
WE NEED ALL OF OUR SWIM PARENTS AND ATHLETES TO TAKE A “FREE”

USA Swimming will track the number of people that take the quick online training program from our team and we will be awarded points based on our completion rate. The more parents and swimmers that participate, THE BETTER!
