WANT TO EVALUATE YOUR CLUB'S SAFE SPORT ACTIVITIES?

Take the online self-assessment and gain a greater understanding of how the available resources can assist you in creating a culture of Safe Sport within your team.

There are six sections of the self-assessment, consistent with the six program areas of Safe Sport.  While there are not necessarily right or wrong answers to the assessment, the questions and the recommendations in the user guide are designed to provide a step by step map to create a Safe Sport culture on your team.

Take the self-assessment first.  When you are finished, you will receive a copy of your responses.  Use the guide to review your self-assessment with the other leaders of your swim club.  If you would like individualized feedback on your self-assessment, please contact Maggie Vail at (719) 866-3552 or mvail@usaswimming.org
