SAFE SPORT EDUCATION FOR PARENTS

The best tool in keeping Missouri Valley Swimming safe for our swimmers is education. USA Swimming provides a course for parents that includes an introduction to Safe Sport, abuse, and reporting information.

The first instructions are for those parents who are NOT a USA Swimming non-athlete member.
