"Article 502.6.8 which requires clubs to comply with USA Swimming’s Pre-Employment Screening program."

Jets Aquatic Club has adopted the recommended screening processes as our policies.

Clubs are responsible for hiring and supervising their own coaches and staff, and managing their own volunteers. USA Swimming does not hire, supervise, or manage a club’s employment relationship with its coaches, staff, or volunteers, as that is an independent responsibility of the club. Responsible and thorough hiring practices are critical to maintaining a safe and healthy training environment for our members. 

The pre-employment screening program requires clubs to certify to USA Swimming that they have conducted three required screens prior to offering employment to any potential employee.

The three screens are: 

(1) past employment reference checks 

(2) verify the highest held level of education 

(3) acquire a state motor vehicle report


Jets Aquatic Club also completes two additional screens: 

(1) social network search

(2) Google media search
