Safe Sport

Our Commitment

Safe sport is a fundamental tenet underpinning the work we do at Swim BC. A sport-wide movement, safe sport addresses the culture, habits, and mechanisms of how we deliver our programs to our membership. The primary effort is to ensure that swimming experiences are enjoyable, welcoming, and accessible for all participants from age group to master swimmers, coaches, officials, club administrators and parents.

Safe sport is a “bucket” that holds many different topics, tasks, and deliverables. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Prevention, reporting, investigation, and sanctioning of maltreatment Injury prevention and management.
  • Mental health and wellness
  • Privacy and confidentiality
  • Consent
  • Equity, diversity, and inclusion

Swim BC’s commitment to safe sport, in coordination with partner organizations, is to strive to ensure that everyone can participate in swimming and reach their full potential. Swim BC is committed to supporting members by creating environments that are accessible, inclusive, that respect their participants personal goals and are free from all forms of maltreatment.
