        USA Swimming's Safe Sport Programming

USA Swimming is committed to fostering a fun, healthy and safe environment for all of its members. For that reason, there is a detailed Code of Conduct in place. The rules, policies, reporting structure, education and tools are intended to serve the membership to help maintain a safe environment.

The Safe Sport Handbook was designed to help USA Swimming members implement safe sport practices at the local level and includes detailed information on USA Swimming policies, guidelines, best practices, strategies and tools.  Please visit the USA Swimming web-site to view all of these materials and the Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy (MAAPP).
