Safe Sport for Parent Volunteers

ATHLETE PROTECTION EDUCATION

USA Swimming is committed to raising awareness about prevention of abuse in sport. We believe that the first step to creating an empowered team environment is education.  

The training will help you:

  • Understand the scope and effects of abuse in sport
  • Recognize the signs of grooming behavior and boundary violations
  • Understand how to establish boundaries and protect against false allegations
  • Know how to react and report suspected abuse


FREE TRAINING FOR PARENTS

Parents are a critical component to our overall goal of protecting children from sexual abuse. The comprehensive online programming includes information about how offenders operate; how to recognize and respond to boundary violations, myths and facts about child sexual abuse and USA Swimming’s Athlete Protection Policies and Procedures.
