Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy

Dear Cerritos Aquatic Club parents, coaches and members,

USA Swimming has implemented Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy (MAAPP) to protect minor athletes from abuse.   All USA Swimming member clubs are required to implement MAAPP in full by June 23, 2019.  As such, CAC will adopt MAAPP policy in full and will follow the guidelines starting June 23.  

The Board recommends that ALL parents and swimmers read the MAAPP document to gain an understanding of the policy and how it is aimed to protect our minor athletes.  

There is mandatory Athlete Protection Training Requirement for Adult Athletes over 18 years of age which can be found on USA Swimming website.  Starting July 23, 2019, any adult athlete who has not completed APT will not be a USA Swimming athlete member in good standing.

Here is how to get to MAAPP files under Swimming -
