Athlete Protection Training - In response to member feedback, beginning September 1, 2019, you may notice the next time you log in that the three courses of the Athlete Protection Training have been streamlined into one. The training course continues to be produced by the U.S. Center for SafeSport and must be completed annually with a renewal date one year from the completion date. All adult athlete and non-athlete members must complete this training. This includes coaches, officials, Junior Coaches and anyone authorized to have regular contact with or authority over a minor athlete. Please direct questions about the Athlete Protection Training to   Please note: The APT used to be renewed every 2 years, and everyone expired 12/31.  When USA Swimming transitioned to the U.S. Center for SafeSport course content in February, 2019 to comply with a federal mandate, they affirmed that existing expirations for our non-athlete members would be honored, and the next time they took the APT, they would adopt the new annual rules.  If your APT was completed just prior to the conversion to annual renewal, your APT experation date may extend longer than a year.
