Piranha Safe Sport

The Piranhas and the YMCA are committed to keeping the swimmers and children of the YMCA safe. Here will you find links to USA Swimming’s and Piranha’s Safe Sport resources.

USA Swimming has adopted a new safe sport policy in 2019. USA Swimming Member clubs are required to implement the USA Swimming Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy (MAAPP) in full by June 23, 2019. MAAPP contains five sections: one-on-one interactions, travel, social media and electronic communications, locker rooms and changing areas and massage, rubdowns and athletic training modalities. Please read below for the Policy and other education materials. All swimmers, parents and coaches MUST sign off that they have read and agree to the MAAPP.  Parents and swimmers sign off on this at registration.
