Swim Omaha 2021 MAAPP

USA Swimming’s top priority continues to be creating healthy and positive environments free from abuse for all its members. As part of its commitment to safeguard athletes, USA Swimming has released an updated Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy (MAAPP) applicable to all USA Swimming Adult Participants, Zones, LSCs and member clubs. These required updates come from the U.S. Center for SafeSport (the “Center”). USA Swimming’s updated MAAPP document has been approved by the Center and is required to be fully implemented by USA Swimming, its Zones, LSCs and member clubs. USA Swimming has set a deadline for those organizations to implement the policy in full no later than September 1, 2021

Safe Sport

Atheltes 12-17 and 1 Adult household member should complete a course. Find more information and take the training at www.usaswimming.org/learn The course is called "Optional Course: Safe Sport for Athletes" or "Parent’s Guide to Misconduct in Sport"

As a club we need to be over 50% participation in these courses. We are currently less than 10% for the athletes and adults.



When you complete your safe sport (Athletes and parents) Upload your completed certificate to: https://bit.ly/SafeSportSO to be entered into a prize drawing. Drawing will be on Sunday Sept 11 at 12:00. Prizes can be picked up at team pictures.
