SAFE SPORT- Minor Athlete Abuse Protection Policy (MAAPP)

We are asking ALL our TOPS parents to read the MAAPP policy and cite that you have read the policy by copying the paragraph below and emailing it to topsswimming@gmail.com by June 23rd.

It is required, by USA Swimming that we provide documentation that our parents are informed of this policy. We are asking ALL our families to complete this, even though they do not have swimmers who participate in USA Swimming. It is important that we are all on the same page.

We already have policies for locker room, electronics, bullying, and travel. These polices are included in the MAAPP, but we are ensuring that we are fully complying with what USA Swimming is requiring. We thank you, in advance, for taking the time to read MAAPP and emailing us.

MAAPP Policy emailed to all via the weekly announcements.

After you have read the policy, please do the following:

1) Go to topsswimming@gmail.com

2) In the email subject line please write: name /MAAPP (e.g. Fink- MAAPP)

3) Copy and paste the following in your email:
“I acknowledge that I have received, read and understood the Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy and/or that the Policy has been explained to me or my family. I further acknowledge and understand that agreeing to comply with the contents of this Policy is a condition of my membership with TOPS Swim and Dive.”

4) Please electronically sign your name.

THANK YOU!
