What does Safe Sport mean? Across the spectrum of all sports, concerns lie therein where personal boundaries are crossed between peers as well as coach-to-athlete relationships. Las Vegas Swim Club is a Safe Sport compliant club. This means we have met or exceeded all requirements and protocols set forth by USA Swimming to assure vigilance and proactive, corrective measures if a sign of a reportable event occurs. This helps assure that Las Vegas Swim Club provides a safe place for our young athletes to participate in sport.

Las Vegas Swim Club strictly adheres to the policies and procedures set forth by USA Swimming.  We are committed to being "One Team, One Family" by providing a safe, healthy, and positive environment in which our athletes can thrive and grow.  The safety of our athletes comes first.  Any potential misconduct is expected to be brought to our immediate attention.
