Paseo Aquatics in Valencia has become one of the first sanctioned swimming clubs in the nation to be recognized by USA Swimming as a “Safe Sport Club” and the first in Southern California Swimming.
To date, fewer than 40 clubs out of some 2,500 clubs nationwide have been able to satisfy the requirements set forth by USA Swimming to be so recognized.
The swim club worked through an accreditation process offered by USA Swimming set forth by the US Center for Safe Sports to ensure clubs are meeting requirements to educate families, coaches and athletes in the preventative measure that can be taken to create a safe environment for kids.
Awarded in March 2019, the badge found on the Paseo Aquatics website (www.paseoaquatics.org) represents that the club is Safe Sport-compliant.
“Being such an advocate of youth sports, I was eager to help guide Paseo Aquatics on this most pivotal certification of becoming an accredited Safe Sport Club,” said Kelly Zancanaro, who serves as Paseo Aquatics Safe Sport representative. “The protection, mentally and physically, of our athletes is imperative to their continued growth, progression and love for the sport of swimming.”
The swim club is currently working very diligently to satisfy the Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy, another part of the U.S. Center of Safe Sport.
Paseo Aquatics has been in existence for eight years and for the last six years a USA Sanctioned Swim Club.
As summer approaches and the pools get busy, call 661-388-5301 to set up an evaluation for your kids to enter the program. The swim club offers private lessons, group lessons, pre-competitive swim and competitive swim programs for all ages.
