GCAT Safe Sport

A key priority of USA Swimming and GCAT is to keep our athletes safe. No form of abuse, including child sexual abuse, has a place in our sport. USA Swimming and GCAT are committed to reducing the risk of abuse in swimming and increasing awareness of red flag behavior through its Safe Sport program. All adults working with athletes are responsible for creating an abuse-free environment.
