USAS Athlete Protection Information
We can all help foster safe and positive environments by educating ourselves on the tragic issue of abuse. USA Swimming offers training for all members with specific free training for parents and athletes.
The Safe Sport Committee has developed the attached fliers which give information about the free parent and athlete on-line training regarding safe sport.
Safe Sport Flyer - Athlete Education flyer
I think it is important to include this information in our meet programs. I would like every team to consider including one or both in empty pages of heat sheets. USA swimming is working on versions of these that would fit into ½ and ¼ page versions. We should also posting them in the results area at our swim meets. We recognize that there are costs associated in doing this, but we hope everyone will recognize the importance of spreading the Safe Sport message within our membership.
I would also like to ask all of us to promote safe sport training in our clubs and with our families. We need to encourage all our parents to have their swimmers participate in this free training. The parents should consider participating in the athlete training as well as the parent training so they know what message is being said to their children. The athlete training was designed for athletes 13 years old and up. I feel it is important for parents and their swimmers under the age of 13, if the parents deem it appropriate to also participate in the safe sport training together so both parties can open up a dialogue about this important topic.
