The YMCA of Southeastern NC’s Cape Fear Aquatic Club Swim Team is the first North Carolina Swimming club to earn USA Swimming’s new Safe Sport Club Recognition!
The Safe Sport Club Recognition program distinguishes USA Swimming clubs that demonstrate their commitment to creating safe, healthy, and positive environments for all of their members through the development and implementation of Athlete Protection Policies, Safe Sport Best Practices, and Safe Sport education.
We are excited Cape Fear Aquatic Club will remain in the forefront for safe and positive swimming environments.
“This initiative is being implemented nationwide by USA Swimming and we are excited to be one of the first clubs to earn this recognition. Providing safe and positive swimming environments for young athletes has always been a priority for our team, so it is natural that we are one of the first in our state to be recognized as a safe sport club,” Scott VanKuilenberg, Director of Competitive Swimming
Cape Fear Aquatic Club has been highlighted as a Safe Sport Recognized Club with a banner on their team listing in the USA Swimming Find-a-Team Search and will receive a medallion for their club’s website as well.
The YMCA of Southeastern North Carolina’s Cape Fear Aquatic Club is a year round competitive swim team offering high quality professional coaching and technique instruction for swimmers of all abilities. The goal of our team is to provide every member an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve success at his or her level of ability, from novice to international competitor.
Cape Fear Aquatic Club has over 90 swimmers on the team this season, 5 of which have qualified for YMCA Nationals that will be held this spring in Greensboro, NC. Tryouts for the 2019-2020 season will be in August of 2019. Learn more about Cape Fear Aquatic Club at: www.capefearaquaticclub.org
