USA Swimming Keeping Athletes First Safe Sport Initiative 2020

In what may be a silver lining of the last few months, the USA Swimming Safe Sport team helped facilitate more coach, athlete, and parent virtual trainings in support of the Safe Sport Club Recognition Program in the first half of 2020 than in any other calendar year.

In an effort to support this upward trend, the USA Swimming’s Board of Directors endorsed a new incentive, as part of the Keeping Athletes First Action Plan, to continue to increase the number of clubs to achieve Safe Sport Club Recognition. 

Once a club achieves Safe Sport Club Recognition, it will be automatically entered into a monthly drawing for the chance to have a National Team member or alum visit your club. This is an exciting opportunity to have a conversation, a clinic and/or take photos with one of these athletes at no cost to the team. All previously recognized clubs and newly recognized clubs will be eligible for entry.

Additional Information:

  1. Monthly drawings will begin July 2, 2020 and continue through December 1, 2021.
  2. Clubs can only win one time.
  3. Winners will be picked at random and notified via email.
  4. The visit will be scheduled at the convenience of the club and athlete and will take place on a single day.
  5. The visit may take place in-person or virtually, at USA Swimming’s discretion.
  6. There will be no cost to your club for the visit.
