USA SWIMMING, NIAGARA LSC and the TWST SWIM CLUB are committed to fostering a fun, healthy and safe sport enviornment for all its members. We all must recognize that the safety of swimmers lies with all those involved in the sport and is not the sole responsibility of any one person at the CLUB, LSC or NATIONAL LEVEL.
We all have a role to play in creating a healthy setting for our sport. The USA Swimming Safe Sport raises awareness about misconduct in our sport, promotes dialogue, and provides training and resources. When we work as a team, we can build a plan to make swimming safe-for everyone.
USA Swimming has devoted significant resources to education and training for all members and volunteers involved in the sport of swimming. Click here to go to the USA Swimming Safe Sport page or see below for direct access to some of the specific areas.
