Action Required: MAAPP Acknowledgement

USA Swimming, AGUA's national governing body, requires every family to read and acknowledge the Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy (MAAPP).

MAAPP was designed to prioritize the safety of athletes and addresses one-on-one interactions, social media and electronic communications, local and team travel, locker rooms and changing areas, and athletic training modalities.

Acknowledgment by all families is mandatory. Please do so by next Friday, September 30, 2022.
