Official Site of RENEGADE AQUATICS, Escondido's Competitive Swim Team

At Renegade Aquatics, we strive to provide the safest environment for your children.  While we focus on teaching the swimmers the basic concepts of our sport and strive for athletic success, it must be done with an emphasis on promoting the physical, mental, and emotional security, and well being of your children.

As a member of USA Swimming, Renegade Aquatics adheres to the best practices offered by our national organization and our San Diego Imperial LSC.  Below please find documents that can be clicked on which explain the steps that we take to create a safe environment for your children.  There is a LOT of information to go over, but please reach out to John McGlynn - or directly to USA Swimming or Safe Sport if necessary - if you ever have any comments or concerns.
