USA Swimming is working to increase awareness and reduce the risk of abuse in swimming through its Safe Sport Program. With all youth sports, creating a safe environment is the responsibility of all adults who work with kids.

Ocean Pines Swim Team, its coaches, officials, and volunteers are committed to providing our swimmers with a safe and secure environment in which to practice, compete, and enjoy the sport of swimming. We fully endorse and support USA Swimming’s Safe Sport and Safety programs by providing training, policy guidelines, reporting channels, and other resources for our clubs and members.
