WAC Receives Safe Sport Recognition

Amy Breitbart

 

We are excited to share that our club has received Safe Sport Recognized Club status!  We are committed to providing a safe, healthy, and positive environment, and our team has received recognition for our efforts to this end.  We could not have received this recognition without the help of our parents and swimmers. Thank you to everyone that responded to our call for help and completed the online course.  We did it!

We added a Safe Sport page to our website and through USA Swimming’s Safe Sport Program, we submitted our Athlete Protection Policies, safeguarding procedures, and several other relevant documents, including:

  • Our travel and anti-bullying policies;
  • Our team codes of conduct;
  • Our communication procedures;
  • And our efforts to educate about Safe Sport, abuse prevention, and healthy boundaries.

All of these items were reviewed and approved by USA Swimming’s Safe Sport staff.  Our Safe Sport Recognized status will run for 2 years, after which time we will be eligible to renew by reviewing/submitting all of our policies and procedures again.

We are excited to have achieved this milestone.  Thank you again for all your help and support.  Our families are AMAZING!

Have a wonderful weekend,

Wolverine Aquatics Staff
