USA Swimming Safe Sport
The purpose of USA Swimming Safe Sport Program is to allow our Program the ability to demonstrate its commitment to creating an abuse-free, safe, healthy, and positive environment for all of our members through the development and implementation of Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention and Anti-Bullying policies, Safe Sport Best Practices, and Athlete Protection Training.
Safe Sport Training For Athletes & Parents
Safe Sport's online education program for parents provides an introduction to Safe Sport, abuse, and reporting information. The course is called “Parents Guide to Misconduct in Sport."
Safe Sport’s online training for athletes provides an introduction to Safe Sport, healthy boundaries, and how to speak up about misconduct, abuse, and the behaviors that lead to abuse. The course is called “SAFE SPORT FOR ATHLETES”. This course is required for athletes ages 12 and older but it contains information that all of our athletes would benefit from hearing. Athletes will not have access to their training until their USA Athlete Membership is processed at the beginning of practices but parents should be able to access their training any time.
