Chinook Aquatic Club & Safe Sport

Chinook Aquatic Club is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for its swimmers. USA Swimming has made enhancements to its Safe Sport policy and education requirements as a part of its continued commitment to safeguarding our athletes. USA Swimming created the Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policies (MAAPP) to set a baseline for acceptable safety standards that limit one-on-one interactions between adults and minor athletes.

Full implementation of the Safe Sport Program involves six key components:

  • Policies and Guidelines
  • Screening and Selection
  • Training and Education
  • Monitoring and Supervision
  • Recognizing, Responding, and Reporting
  • Grassroots Engagement and Feedback

MAAPP applies to:

  • All USA Swimming non-athlete members and adult athlete members
  • Participating non-members (e.g., meet marshals, meet computer operators, etc.)
  • LSC and club adult staff and board members
  • Any other adult authorized to have regular contact with or authority over minor athletes
