The Mission of the Woodland Swim Team is to provide a safe, healthy and positive enviroment where swimmers have the opportunity to succeed and grow to their highest level in swimming. Swimmers will develop skills through swimming that will help them succeed in life.

Safe Sport

Safe Sport is USA Swimming's comprehensive abuse prevention program.

The Woodland Swim Team (WOOD) believes that every child has the right to a safe swimming environment that is free from abuse.  WOOD swimmers should be free to work hard, pursue their goals, make friends, benefit from good coaching, contribute as a great teammate and celebrate achievements without worrying about being in an abusive situation.

USA Swimming and WOOD is committed to fostering a fun, healthy, and safe environment for all its members, and in 2010, USA Swimming formally implemented a comprehensive Safe Sport program to respond to and prevent instances of abuse and misconduct within the sport of swimming.  Since then USA Swimming Safe Sport has worked tirelessly to educate members, put policies in place, and empower LSCs and clubs like WOOD to create the best possible environments for all members.
