What is Safe Sport?

USA Swimming is committed to providing a healthy and positive environment free from abuse for all its members. 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.

See the USA Swimming Safe Sport site for detailed information about the Safe Sport program.

The Safe Sport for Parents site has resources, including the best practice guidelines, for parents to participate in creating a safe environment for all athletes.
