Safe Sport

At DMSF we care about the safety and welfare of all of our athletes.  As a member of USA Swimming, DMSF adheres to the practices and policies to USA Swimming's Safe Sport Initiative.  A top priority of USA Swimming is to keep athletes safe from sexual abuse.  The US Center for SafeSport is a separate and independent organization that oversees all reports of sexual misconduct involving athletes, and it created a new set of policies which establish baselines and acceptable safety standards to limit one-on-one interactions, social media and electronic communications between adults and minor athletes.  The policies also govern local and team travel arrangements with minor athletes, rules for the use of locker rooms and changing areas, and rules regarding massages, rubdowns and athletic training modalities such as stretching. 

USA Swimming has adopted these SafeSport policies, and has added requirements and education obligations regarding these new policies for its members, like DMSF.  Please join us in protecting out athletes and giving them the best experiences possible in the sport of swimming!
