Metro Parks Tacoma and USA Swimming are committed to fostering a fun, healthy, and safe environment for all our members.
In 2010, USA Swimming formally implemented 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.
Metro Aquatics swim teams and staff strictly comply with the most athlete-protective of best practices from both Metro Parks Tacoma and USA Swimming Safe Sport.
