MAAPP & SAFE SPORT PROGRAMMING

USA Swimming is committed to safeguarding all of its members with the welfare of its athlete members as top priority. Safe Sport is USA Swimming’s comprehensive abuse prevention program and provides tools for swim clubs to educate their members and intervene in risky situations.

We, Florida Gold Coast Swimming, fully endorse and support USA Swimming’s Safe Sport and Safety programs, as well as MAAPP, by helping to provide these resources for our LSC members.
