Safe Sport

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.
