Ahoy hoy Trumbull Pisces,

A message from USA Swimming-

USA Swimming’s top priority continues to be keeping our athletes safe. No form of abuse, including child sexual abuse, has a place in our sport. 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.

The Center urged all National Governing Bodies (NGBs) to add restrictions tailored to fit the sport. On April 29, 2019, USA Swimming released its Minor Athlete Protection Policy (MAAPP) addressing one-on-one interactions, social media and electronic communications, travel: local and team, locker rooms and changing areas and massages, rubdowns and athletic training modalities.  All USA Swimming member clubs are required to implement MAAPP in full by June 23, 2019.

With this the Trumbull Pisces will be following in accordance with USA Swimming and implementing this updated policy to our team. Attached in this email is the Trumbull Pisces 2019 Safe Sport - Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy and Agreement Page. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT ALL TRUMBULL PISCES SWIMMERS AND PARENTS GO OVER THE POLICY AND SIGN THE AGREEMENT PAGE AND TURN IN A TRUMBULL PISCES COACH ON OR BEFORE SUNAY JUNE 23, 2019.  Please make sure to go over the whole policy swimmers and parents alike, we want all PIsces to be on the same page.
