Click here to deal with a Safe Sport Concern.


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


We believe that every child has the right to a safe swimming environment that is free from abuse.  Our swimmers should be free to work hard, pursue their goals, make friends, benefit from good coaching, and celebrate achievements without worrying about being in an abusive situation.


USA Swimming is committed to fostering a fun, healthy, and safe environment for all its members, and in 2010, it 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 to create the best possible environments for all members.


Full implementation of the Safe Sport Program involves six key components:


  1. Policies and Guidelines
  2. Screening and Selection
  3. Training and Education
  4. Monitoring and Supervision
  5. Recognizing, Responding, and Reporting
  6. Grassroots Engagement and Feedback

USA Swimming and Ensworth Aquatics put the health, safety, and well being of its swimmers first. To that end, it is extremely important that Safe Sport violations be reported immediately.


If you see something, say something! The biggest mistake we can make about reporting is to not report on the assumption that someone else will. Choosing not to report could allow for serious abuse to continue happening.

USA Swimming’s top priority continues to be keeping our athletes safe. No form of abuse, including child sexual abuse, has a place in our sport. As a part of its continued commitment to safeguarding our athletes, USA Swimming has enacted enhancements to Safe Sport policy and education requirements.

The U.S. Center for SafeSport (“the Center”), the separate, independent, organization that oversees all sexual misconduct reports in the Olympic and Paralympic Movement created the Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policies to set a baseline for acceptable safety standards that limit one-on-one interactions between adults and minor athletes. The Center urged all National Governing Bodies (NGBs) to add restrictions tailored to fit the sport. 

USA Swimming released the Minor Athlete Protection Policy (MAAPP) addressing one-on-one interactions, social media and electronic communications, travel: local and team, locker rooms and changing areas and massages, rubdowns and athletic training modalities in April 2019.  All USA Swimming member clubs were required to implement MAAPP in June 23, 2019.

Below you will find the Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy in full. Join USA Swimming and Ensworth Aquatics in our commitment to do more to keep our athletes safe and abuse out of our sport.
