Beginning February 4, 2019, the Athlete Protection Training is provided through the U.S. Center for SafeSport. The required courses are found on the USA Swimming LEARN site and will be renewed annually. As a reminder, this certification is now required for all new and existing members (age 18+) including coaches, officials, chaperones, meet directors, and adult athletes.
BE AWARE: A printout of a certificate is NOT acceptable proof that an athlete has met the membership requirements. The courses need to be completed on the LEARN platform and reflected on the athlete’s remember record (which will then reflect on a meet recon report, the club roster in the club portal, and also on the athlete’s Deck Pass membership card). On deck at a meet, an athlete could show a meet official their membership card on Deck Pass as proof that they are a member in good standing.
