April  9, 2013     Online Report of Occurrence Form - Over a year ago, USA Swimming implemented the ONLINE Report of Occurrence form. The paper copies of the incident report are no longer used.  Some of our member clubs may not have been properly informed of our new online system when it began. We continue to get paper copies that may still be posted on the club websites or in their safety manuals.   We ask that the club personnel notify all their staff and volunteers of the Online Report of Occurrence form that is found at this easy to use link on the USA Swimming website:  www.usaswimming.org/ROO  The incident reports no longer need to be submitted in triplicate as in the past (USA Swimming, Risk Management Services, LSC Safety Chair). They only need to be submitted one time into the online system.

February 8, 2013  USA Swimming released its first-ever Safe Sport Handbook to help  members implement safe sport practices at LSC level.  The Safe Sport Handbook includes detailed information on USA Swimming policies, guidelines, best practices, strategies and tools. It will be an invaluable tool for all USA Swimming members and clubs and is available online. The handbook will also be mailed to each of USA Swimming’s member clubs.
