The USA Swimming Safe Sport program offers FREE parent education for our membership.   The course is online and takes about 15-20 minutes to complete.  We have had overwhelmingly positive reviews from those who have taken it, but there are many more parents out there who should have this important information – please share the link below with your membership, post it to your website, and promote it at your team meetings.  We are all responsible for making sure our children are safe in swimming!   The course is available here under the header “Free Training for Parents”.

USA Swimming clubs are responsible for hiring and supervising their own coaches and staff, and managing their own volunteers. Responsible and thorough hiring practices are critical to maintaining a safe and healthy training environment for our members.

The pre-employment screening program requires clubs to conduct three required screens prior to offering employment to any potential employee. The three screens are (1) past employment reference checks; (2) verify the highest held level of education; (3) acquire a state motor vehicle report. Clubs are also encouraged to complete two option screens: (1) social network search; and (2) Google media search.

Click here to learn more about the program or initiate a pre-employment screen.
