APT TRAINING & SAFE SPORT REQUIREMENTS

Athlete Protection Training: 

This is a reminder that all athletes 18 & Over must now complete the Athlete Protection Training (APT). So if you have turned 18 and have not completed this training, you must do so ASAP-you cannot participate until this is completed.

USA Swimming SafeSport

We need to update our Team’s SafeSport status and we need everyone's help. We are asking you to either complete the zoom call and survey or complete the training on the LEARN Platform. We prefer these two methods, but if we don't get much response, we will be required to hold madatory training for parents and athletes all at once. These two options give you the flexibility to complete the training on your own time. Thank you in advance! 

The Safe Sport Club Recognition program allows FAST to demonstrate its commitment to creating a healthy and positive environment free from abuse for all its members through the development and implementation of club governance measures, Safe Sport policies and reporting mechanisms, Safe Sport best practices and training to athletes and parents. 

ZOOM TRAINING: Attendance will be taken via a survey at the end of the training at the USA Swimming staff will manually update the Club Portal so that clubs receive credit towards recognition. 

Or 

USA Swimming LEARN Platform: Athletes and parents can independently complete the training sessions using the USA Swimming LEARN platform.

  • Please be sure to take the survey at the end of the training. Our club code is FAST-LE or Firestone Akron Swim Team-Lake Erie LSC
