Safe Sport is USA Swimming’s initiative to provide a safe environment for all its athletes.

 

Safe Sport Mondays

Safe Sport Mondays is a program to launch a national conversation within swim clubs about everyday issues that clubs face.  Having regular short conversations about different team and Safe Sport related issues can strengthen a club’s values and open productive communication channels.

On the first Monday of the month coaches across the country read a scenario with their swimmers and have a short, 5-10-minute discussion about the scenario.

Utah Swimming Concussion Management

The goal of Utah Swimming Concussion Management is to ensure that concussed athletes are identified, treated, referred to receive appropriate medical care and are fully recovered before returning to activity.

To do this, Utah Swimming provides:

Education about concussions for coaches, officials, club leaders, parent and athlete

Procedures for coaches, officials and others to follow in managing concussions and head injuries, as well as athlete care and return to swim issues following a concussion. To comply with Utah State law, there are procedures about informed consent before participation.
