Safe Sport Recognition Program (SSRP) - CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR SAFE SPORT RECOGNIZED TEAMS: DEFY, LRSC, PBAY, PPSC, SMAC, SEAL, WCCU

Maine Swimming has recently approved $250 for each club that completes SSRP. USA Swimming has also recently made it a little easier to complete the hardest steps, getting 10% of your club to have completed the appropriate training. 

Step by step instructions for Clubs. If you get stuck on any of the requirements, USA Swimming has editable forms that you can download, edit to match your team's information and save and upload. Most of these are found at usaswimming.org/maapp.

Parent & Athlete instructions for online classes. This is if they want to take the classes on their own. You can also do a Zoom meeting with your group and go through the appropriate class. Send a roster of those who attend the Zoom to [email protected] for credit.
