MAINE SWIMMING SAFE SPORT

UPDATE 4/26/2020:

Take the time to start or finish your Safe Sport Recognition Program (SSRP). 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. 

Please don't hesitate to reach out to me with questions regarding SSRP. Below are some links to help you out.

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 mvail@usaswimming.org for credit.

Weekly Zoom Trainings that will count towards your Parent/Athlete/Coach requirements (all coaches and 10% of parents/athletes). The parent/athlete trainings are 1 hour.

 Wednesday, 3:00-4:00pm - Parent Training https://zoom.us/j/93724361466?pwd=OVF4RFlNZFpaMHhqSEVVRGwzbmpQUT09
