Minor Athlete Abuse Protection Plan

As a part of our continued commitment to safeguarding our athletes, USA Swimming has enacted enhancements to our Safe Sport policy and education requirements.

The U.S. Center for SafeSport (“the Center”), the separate, independent, organization that oversees all sexual misconduct reports in the Olympic and Paralympic Movement created the Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policies to set a baseline for acceptable safety standards that limit one-on-one interactions between adults and minor athletes.

As a condition of membership, all athlete members ages 18 and over must complete Athlete Protection Training. 
All non-athlete members of USA Swimming and all adult athletes (age 18+) are required to complete the Athlete Protection Training by clicking the link below:
