Below is the Online Report of Occurrence form.  The Report of Occurrence shall be submitted by the coach, official or someone affiliated with the club/facility any time there is an accident or injury during any USA Swimming activities such as Sanctioned or Approved swim meets, swimming practices, contracted Swim-a-Thons or approved social events. The parent or injured party should NOT submit the form. The online form does require that certain sections, indicated by an asterisk, be completed before it can be submitted. If you have any questions, please contact

Upon submission of the completed Report of Occurrence, you will receive an automated email indicating that USA Swimming has received the form.  In the body of the email is a detailed account of the information that was reported.

Note: If you are unable to submit the online form at the meet, you may print a draft paper copy, document the necessary details and then you, or someone from your club, will enter the report online as soon as possible.  See below for a draft paper copy.
