Safe Sport

The Bozeman Barracudas and USA Swimming are committed to fostering a fun, healthy, and safe environment for all its members.  We are a Safe Sport-recognized team!! 

We implement USA Swimming's program, initiated in 2010 to formally implement 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.
