safe sport recognized club program
Become a Safe Sport Recognized Club and demonstrate your team's commitment to safeguarding your athletes and all participants!
The Safe Sport Recognized Club program allows clubs to demonstrate their commitment to creating a safe, healthy, and positive environment for all of their members through the development and implementation of Athlete Protection Policies, Safe Sport Best Practices, and Safe Sport education.
Safe Sport Recognized Clubs earn a badge to display on their website, and these clubs will be designated as Safe Sport Recognized in USA Swimming’s Find-a-Club online tool.
what's involved in the safe sport recognition program?
- Policies, procedures, and best practices: clubs will share their Athlete Protection Policies and the other ways they've set up their clubs to safeguard members.
- Personnel: a big part of successfully implementing Safe Sport is getting the right people involved. Clubs will demonstrate the screening and selection procedures for staff and volunteers.
- Training and Education: clubs will be awarded points for having athletes and parents complete the Safe Sport online courses, as well as hosting in-person Safe Sport-related training.
- Reporting: clubs will demonstrate how they communicate to their members about reporting to USA Swimming Safe Sport and the Center for SafeSport.
