USA Swimming has a program called “SAFE SPORT”.  USA Swimming is committed to safeguarding all of its members with the welfare of its athlete members as top priority. Safe Sport is USA Swimming’s comprehensive abuse prevention program and provides tools for swim clubs to educate their members and intervene in risky situations.

We, Palos Area Swim Sharks, fully endorse and support USA Swimming’s Safe Sport and Safety programs by helping to provide countless resources for our club members on our very own website, https://www.teamunify.com/Home.jsp?team=ilpass.

OUR GOAL, AS A TEAM, IS TO BECOME A “SAFE SPORT RECOGNIZED” CLUB BY USA SWIMMING.  In order to do this, certain requirements must be met.  Some of which include learning exercises for our swim parents and athletes.  WE NEED ALL OF OUR SWIM PARENTS AND ATHLETES TO TAKE A QUICK COURSE ONLINE WITH USA SWIMMING.  USA Swimming will track the number of people that take the quick online training program from our team and we will be awarded points based on our completion rate.  The more parents and swimmers that participate, THE BETTER!
