LEARN ABOUT SAFE SPORT                               

USA Swimming is committed to fostering a fun, healthy, and safe environment for all its members, and in 2010, it formally implemented a comprehensive Safe Sport program to respond to and prevent instances of abuse and misconduct within the sport of swimming.  Since then USA Swimming Safe Sport has worked tirelessly to educate members, put policies in place, and empower LSCs and clubs to create the best possible environments for all members.

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

  1. Policies and Guidelines

  2. Screening and Selection

  3. Training and Education

  4. Monitoring and Supervision

  5. Recognizing, Responding, and Reporting

  6. Grassroots Engagement and Feedback

The USA Swimming site has tools such as dealing with a concern, a club tool kit, background check information, code of conduct policies and more.  Please visit this link for the most up to date information https://www.usaswimming.org/Home/safe-sport
