Parkway Swim Club becomes the second team in Ozark LSC to be Safe Sport Recognized! Thanks to EVERYONE for all their efforts!
Dear Club Members,
I am pleased to share that our club has received a Safe Sport Recognized Club status. We are committed to providing a safe, healthy, and positive environment here on this team, and we have received recognition for all of our efforts to this end.
Through USA Swimming’s Safe Sport Program, we submitted our Athlete Protection Policies, safeguarding procedures, and educational engagement, including
• Our travel, electronic communication, and anti-bullying policies;
• Our team honor codes and codes of conduct;
• The processes by which we recruit and train staff;
• Our communication procedures;
• And our efforts to educate about Safe Sport, abuse prevention, and healthy boundaries.
All of these items were reviewed by USA Swimming Safe Sport staff. Our Safe Sport Recognized status will run for 2 years, after which time we will be eligible to renew by reviewing all of our policies and procedures again.
We are excited to have achieved this milestone and demonstrate our commitment to providing a Safe Sport environment on this team. Please contact our Safe Sport Coordinator (Chris Etherington; firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
Three-time Olympian, Elizabeth Beisel, came to visit Parkway Swim Club September 27th & 28th. She went over all of the strokes as well as going over streamline and starts. She also had a talk with the swimmers and parents about how she became an Olympian and how the odds were not in her favor on becoming an Olympic swimmer. 0.003% is the percentage of a swimmer becoming a swimmer. Elizabeth stated, “There’s a chance!” 168 swimmers took advantage of it and attended the clinic to learn a few new tricks from the former captain of the 2016 USA Olympic Team. We would like to thank everyone that participated! A special thank you to Elizabeth for coming to Parkway and talking with the swimmers and parents!
