Help Our Team Become Safe Sport Certified!

 

To encourage teams to become Safe Sport Certified, USA Swimming is offering a monetary incentive to teams that become Safe Sport Certified during May. (Consider this a small stay at home fundraiser). This is something the Board has been wanting to do but we need your help.  Certification requires 10% of our parents and members view the training module. This training can be applied to future “volunteer hours.” Please email Debbie Gray if you or your athlete attends a Zoom training session for Safe Sport.

 

Read the memo from OSI below:

Your club can earn $1000 by completing the Safe Sport Certification process by May 31st!  

We are excited to announce that starting Wednesday, April 22, USA Swimming Safe Sport staff will be hosting weekly Zoom trainings to help clubs achieve the training requirements of the Safe Sport Club Recognition Program. Parents and athletes will tune in for the one-hour training where attendance will be taken so their clubs receive credit. There will also be weekly training available to coaches where they will learn more about the Safe Sport Club Recognition program and how to share Safe Sport information with their membership. There is no registration required at this time, attendees only need to join the meeting with the links below and come willing to participate and learn. We will hold these training’s weekly starting April 22nd and every meeting will be held from 12:00 Noon Pacific Standard Time.
