USA Swimming’s Safe Sport program, a comprehensive abuse prevention program, consists of a multi-layered approach to keep kids safe, including: required policies and best practice guidelines; mandatory screening, including criminal background checks and employment screening; training and education; monitoring, supervision and mandatory reporting.  These measures are informed by experts in the field of child safety and are among the strongest safeguards found in youth-serving organizations.

The Arcadia Riptides Swim Club is committed to implementing Safe Sport best practices, and our Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy (MAAPP) is effective as of September 1, 2021.
