PSC is committed to the safety and well-being of all of our members, ensuring the safety of our athlete's is our top priority. As stated in our mission statement:  The mission of the Piranhas is to provide a safe and supportive environment that promotes swimming as a lifelong sport and competitive swimming as an aspect of that sport. We strive to empower every swimmer, regardless of age or ability, to reach his or her highest personal potential, both as an athlete and as a person.

Effective September 1, 2022, there will no longer be a 30-day administrative grace period for athletes who turn age 18. Going forward, any 17-year-old athlete who has not completed the APT requirement by their 18th birthday will not be a USA Swimming member in good standing unless or until the APT requirement is completed. This includes eligibility to compete in USA Swimming sanctioned meets, club practices and all other related activities. Athletes will continue to receive an email notification reminder of the APT requirement 30 days prior to their 18th birthday as well as a reminder on their 18th birthday.

As of September 1, 2021 USA Swimming implemented the New Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy ("MAAPP") set forth by the US Center for Safe Sport.

Safe Sport trainings are required for Coaches, Officials, Board members, adult athletes.  Safe Sport trainings are encouraged for athletes ages 12-17 and non-athletes (parents, grandparents, adults who drive carpool for athletes, etc.)
