MINOR ATHLETE ABUSE PREVENTION POLICY (MAAPP)
All clubs and LSCs are required to implement the new Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy (MAAPP) by June 23, 2019. This page includes helpful links and documents to assist clubs with that requirement. Please direct questions to Safe Sport Maureen Tolliver 540-288-3180.
As a requirement of the policy parents, adult athletes (those who are over 18), and non-athlete members of USA Swimming must sign a statement that they have read and understand MAAPP and other team policies. This has been emailed out to all active members and here is a link to the document:
