Safe Sport Club Recognition

USA Swimming Safe Sport Recognized Program

USA Swimming member clubs consistently embrace Safe Sport abuse prevention measures and educational resources. The Safe Sport Recognized Club Program (“SSRP”) allows a USA Swimming member club to publicly demonstrate its unwavering commitment to creating an abuse-free, safe, healthy and positive environment for all its members through the implementation of the Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy, Anti-Bullying measures, Safe Sport Best Practices and Athlete Protection Training. 

Using a web-based tool, member clubs can achieve SSRP status by detailing club procedures, uploading policies and verifying education and training efforts. SSRP designation is valid for a period of two years and a designated club will be eligible to re-apply for recognition. SSRP clubs will earn a badge to display on the club website and will be designated as Safe Sport Recognized on the USA Swimming Find A Team online search tool.
