The U.S. Center for Safe Sport has issued a new mandatory policy called MAAPP (Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy). You can read the policy and additional information about the policy on the USA Swimming website.
Also, all adult athletes (i.e., athletes that are 18 years old or older) must complete the Athlete Protection Training. Though it sounds daunting/annoying, the training is quite short and simple. Importantly, adult athletes will not be permitted to compete without completing the training. The requirement is now in effect and the grace period for compliance is July 23, 2019 or 30 days after the athlete's 18th birthday, whichever is later.
I am always on the lookout for more pictures to use on the PVS home page. If you took pictures at any meets and are willing to share them with PVS, please send them to me. They need to be pictures that can be cropped to the 5:2 format. I am interested in pictures of swimmers, coaches, officials and other volunteers that make up PVS. I retain sole discretion on which pictures to use on the website -- Webmaster
