The Importance of Reporting

USA Swimming strongly encourages the reporting of sexual misconduct by any member and appreciates your willingness to report inappropriate behavior. Providing specific information regarding abuse or suspected abuse helps USA Swimming to investigate the complaint, and, when appropriate, levy consequences, including revocation of membership.  

Any individual with credible information involving sexual misconduct is required by USA Swimming's Code of Conduct, to report that information to our Athlete Protection Officer. 

Please remember that child abuse and child sexual abuse is a crime. USA Swimming urges all individuals to also report to local law enforcement authorities. 

Out of respect for the importance of this issue and to encourage honest and effective reporting, knowingly false or vindictive reporting will not be tolerated. Note, as per organizational policy, USA Swimming will report any incident of sexual misconduct involving a minor to the appropriate law enforcement authorities.
