Welcome to our Safe Sport page!  Our team is committed to providing a safe environment for athletes, coaches, and families.  Through education and teamwork, we can maintain a club where children can grow as athletes and leaders. 

Hello BA Families!

As a club that takes safety to heart, we want to introduce you to the role of Safe Sport in our club.  Safe Sport is an important piece of the puzzle in creating open communication, safety, and structure in a local swim club.  Safe Sport policies utilized by BA are adopted from those created by USA Swimming. These policies seek to create a safe environment for athletes, coaches, and families.  As a club, BA is vigilant in making sure all safety concerns are heard and handled expeditiously and confidentially. Whether there is a physical, emotional, or cyber concern, we want to make sure athletes, coaches, and families are aware of the proper lines of communication or procedures to follow.  

Our Safe Sport Coordinator is Katie DeWitt. This important position is appointed by the head coach and voted upon by the board of directors.  Katie can be reached for consultation, questions, or concerns at katiedewitt75@gmail.com. Please read the following policies to be sure of the proper channels to follow if you have a concern about the safety of your swimmer, coach, or family.
