USA Swimming encourages member clubs to utilize this time away from practice and competition to complete the requirements of the USA Swimming Safe Sport Club Recognition program.

The Safe Sport Club Recognition program allows a USA Swimming member club to demonstrate its commitment to creating a healthy and positive environment free from abuse for all its members through the development and implementation of club governance measures, Safe Sport policies and reporting mechanisms, Safe Sport best practices and training to athletes and parents.

This resource is intended to provide guidance on the various remote Safe Sport Club Recognition training options available to athletes and parents while maintaining social distance. For additional information on the Safe Sport Club Recognition requirements, please visit www.usaswimming.org/ssrp.
