We are extremely excited to share that our club has received a Safe Sport Recognized Club status, which makes us the FIRST and ONLY team in the New Jersey LSC to be Safe Sport Recognized!   

We are committed to providing a safe, healthy, and positive environment here on this team, and we have received recognition for all of our efforts to this end.

Through USA Swimming’s Safe Sport Program, we submitted our Athlete Protection Policies, safeguarding procedures, and educational engagement, including:

  • Our travel, electronic communication, and anti-bullying policies;
  • Our team honor codes and codes of conduct;
  • The processes by which we recruit and train staff;
  • Our communication procedures;
  • And our efforts to educate about Safe Sport, abuse prevention, and healthy boundaries.

All of these items were reviewed by USA Swimming Safe Sport staff.  Our Safe Sport Recognized status will run for 2 years, after which time we will be eligible to renew by reviewing all of our policies and procedures again.

We are excited to have achieved this milestone and demonstrate our commitment to providing a Safe Sport environment on this team.  Please contact Coach David or Coach Kellyanne with any questions.

Congratulations and Thank YOU to everyone who completed the SafeSport online trainings
