Adult Athlete Training Requirements

USA Swimming requires all adult members to complete Athlete Protection training. As a membership requirement, adult athletes who are currently 18 and older must complete this training. Adult athletes will be given a 30-day grace period in which to complete the training. Successful completion of the training, on an annual basis, is now a membership requirement of adult athletes, and failure to complete it will result in an athlete’s inability to swim in a meet or at practice. This is the same membership requirement for all non athlete members. To learn more go to https://www.usaswimming.org/resource-center/athlete-protection-training.
