2020 FALL REGISTRATION is now ready.  

In May USA Swimming introduced the Minor Athlete Abuse Protection Policy, MAAPP.  This policy addresses 5 specific areas for athlete protections: one on one interactions, locker rooms, travel (both local and team), social media and electronic communications, and massage/athletic training practices.  USA Swimming has mandated all USA Clubs be in compliance with the policies by June 23 2019.  Compliance includes the following:

  1. All club policies (travel, code of conduct, locker room, etc) adhere to the recommendations put forth by USA Swimming Safe Sport.
  2. Clubs maintain a record of signature of acknowledgement from their members that they have read the MAAPPs policies and club policies.
  3. All athletes 18 yrs. old and older complete the Athlete Protection Training on the USA Swimming Safe Sport site, or risk suspension of their USA Swimming membership.
  4. FAQ’s for the Adult Athlete requirement.

As with any new changes, it may start out a little rocky, and there may be some glitches along the way, so please be patient.  Remember: Athlete’s safety is our number one priority!

Here is everything you need for the fall registration process.  Please replace ALL forms from 2019 with the 2020 with these forms.  You may experience delays with registration if the proper forms and procedures are not followed.

 

The 2020 Registration Payment Form should be used each time you mail a check for registration to our office. Note the early registration discount dates for both athlete membership and Club renewal.  Payment and the athlete file or Payment and the Club form (Head Coach must be up to date on ALL certifications to process Club renewal) must be received prior to the date listed to receive the discount.

This form helps to clarify what the check is to be used for.  If you are a club that has a central office (such as a YMCA office) PLEASE include our Payment Form with your request for payment so the office can send us both the form and check.

Checks received without this form may be delayed in processing.

Email registration questions to registration@maswim.org.

**2020 Club Membership Form— This form is NOT included in the attachments above.  This form has been filled out for you using the information in the SWIMS database your club has provided.  It will be mailed to your Club Contact in mid-August.  Please check with that person if it is NOT you to be sure it is received. This form MUST be returned to our office with payment for us to renew your club for 2020. The head coach must be up to date on all certifications in order for the club to renew for 2020.  If there are changes to the information listed on the form, please make those neatly and we will change the information for you in the SWIMS database.
