The Greensboro Community Swim Association and it’s volunteers are committed to providing our swimmers with a safe and secure environment in which to practice, compete, and enjoy the sport of swimming. Although membership in USA Swimming is not required for our programming, we fully endorse and support USA Swimming’s Safe Sport and Safety programs by providing, reporting channels, and other resources for the clubs that participate in our Summer recreational league.

Safe Sport focuses on creating a secure environment for our swimmers and non-athlete members that is free from abuse of any kind including sexual abuse, bullying, and inappropriate communications. USA Swimming’s Safe Sport program provides comprehensive information for clubs, coaches, members, swimmers, and parents. Tools include the Safe Sport Handbook which outlines required policies and best safe sport practices for members and clubs and free online education programs for coaches, officials, parents, and swimmers. Please be aware that in North Carolina everyone has a duty to report suspected child abuse to law enforcement. Contact your county’s Division of Social Services or the Special Victims unit at your police station for more information about reporting.
