At the Mecklenburg Swim Association (MSA), a positive team culture and athlete protection is fundamental and required.  Every coach apart of MSA believes and is committed to athlete protection.  Safe guarding our athletes with clear protection policies and a safe, healthy, and positive environment is a process and responsibility that requires commitment from every parent, athlete, coach, official, and volunteer.  Our USA Swimming Safe Sport page will help you understand what your role is towards MSA's commitment to Safe Sport.  Having clear policies and procedures are more than just information on our website.  We believe in and practice these core values daily and that healthy relationships and boundaries are life skills.  MSA would like you to join our team in this commitment.  Please read through these policies, as they are essential for an MSA positive team culture and come talk to us if you have questions.
