Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy - MAAPP
USA Swimming has implemented a new Safe Sport Initiative. The Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy (MAAPP) will go into effect on Sunday, June 23rd 2019. USA Swimming’s top priority continues to be keeping our athletes safe. No form of abuse, including child sexual abuse, has a place in our sport.
USA Swimming member clubs and LSCs are required to implement this Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy in full.
The Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy must be reviewed and agreed to in writing by all athletes, parents, coaches and other non-athlete members of member clubs on an annual basis with such written agreement to be retained by the club.
Full Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy - HERE.
Supporting educational documents and sample forms below.
All STAT Swimming families must comply with this requirement by committing to the MAAPP during registration each season. Swimmers will not be allowed to practice until registered and acknowledging that all family members involved have read the MAAPP Policy.
Athletes will be required to complete USA Swimming Athlete Protection Courses prior to their 18th birthday. The Athlete Protection Courses will be required to be completed annually. USA Swimming Athlete Protection Courses – HERE.
