LFSC and USA Swimming are committed to the safety and well-being of all of our members, with the welfare of the athletes as the top priority.

On 23/June 2019 LFSC and USA Swimming were required to comply with the New Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy ("MAAPP") set forth by the US Center for Safe Sport. You can read the new policy here.

ALL LFSC athletes 18 years and Older are NOW required to take Athlete Protection Training. The Athlete Protection Training can be found here.

Thank you for your commitment for protecting those in your care.
