USA Swimming and Y-Spartaquatics Swim Club (YSSC) are committed to raising awareness about prevention of abuse in the sport. We believe that all swimmers should enjoy a fun, healthy, safe environment in the sport of swimming. USA Swimming has developed a program called Safe Sport.
Our training tools will help you:
Understand the scope and effects of abuse in sport
Recognize the signs of grooming behavior and boundary violations
Understand how to establish boundaries and protect against false allegations
Know how to react and report when you suspect abuse
Below are a list of recommended trainings and resources for athletes & parents. Please note that all athletes aged 18 and over are required to complete the Athlete Protection Training for USA-Swimming Adults in order to be eligible to participate in any USA Swimming activity.
For additional information and questions, or to report a concern, please contact YSSC's Safe Sport Coordinator, Ed Cullen, by email at [email protected] or by phone at (864) 433-9623, ext. 109.
