Altitude Performance Swim Team received USA Swimming Safe Sport Recognized Club Status

Mike Stromberg

Dear Altitude Performance Swim Team Members,

I am pleased to share that our club has received a Safe Sport Recognized Club status.  We are committed to providing a safe, healthy, and positive environment here on this team, and we have received recognition for all of our efforts to this end.

Through USA Swimming’s Safe Sport Program, we submitted our Athlete Protection Policies, safeguarding procedures, and educational engagement, including

  • Our travel, electronic communication, and anti-bullying policies;
  • Our team honor codes and codes of conduct;
  • The processes by which we recruit and train staff;
  • Our communication procedures;
  • And our efforts to educate about Safe Sport, abuse prevention, and healthy boundaries.

All these items were reviewed by USA Swimming Safe Sport staff.  Our Safe Sport Recognized status will run for 2 years, after which time we will be eligible to renew by reviewing all our policies and procedures again.

We are excited to have achieved this milestone and demonstrate our commitment to providing a Safe Sport environment on this team.  Big thanks go all the parents and swimmers that participated in the training course.

I also want to thank Coach Karen Athen and Leslie Headrick our SafeSport Coordinator. 

Please contact either Karen, Leslie or myself if you have any questions.
