As you all are aware, USA Swimming as issued new policies for interaction with minor athletes (MAAPPS).  As I am hoping you have all read the new policies, one of the biggest changes to come out is that all 18 yr. old athletes must take the Athlete Protection Training on the USA Swimming website within 30 days of their 18th birthday.  Failure to comply with taking the training within 30 days of their birthday will result in an athlete's USA membership being suspended and not able to compete in USA competitions, both local and national.
