Safe Sport

USA Swimming

Safe Sport is USA Swimming’s (USAS) program to eliminate sexual abuse and misconduct in our sport. The safety and well-being of our swimmers is a priority. We all need to commit to making the SMRT swim environment safe and healthy for everyone involved, including swimmers, coaches, parents and volunteers.
