SAFE SPORT - Minor Athlete Protection Policy - MAAPP

USA Swimming and Tsunami Swim Team's top priority continues to be keeping our athletes safe. No form of abuse, including child sexual abuse, has a place in our sport. As part of our continued commitment to safeguarding our athletes, USA Swimming has enacted enhancements to our Safe Sport policies and education requirements for all USA Swimming Clubs.

 
On April 29, 2019, USA Swimming released its Minor Athlete Protection Policy (MAAPP), which was mandated by the US Center for Safe Sport. The MAAPP addresses one-on-one interactions, social media and electronic communications, travel: local and team, locker rooms and changing areas and massages, rubdowns and athletic training modalities. USA Swimming requires full implementation of MAAPP by June 23, 2019.
 
As a club, we believe that these policies will help our club, swimmers and parents be more aware and foster an even safer environment for all swimmers. You can learn more about USA Swimming MAAPP on the USA Swimming website and to read the full policy please click the link below.
