Safe Sport



Swimming Canada and its members believe that screening is an integral part of fostering Safe Sport environments. The National Screening Policy can be found here. Please also refer to your local Provincial sections screening policy for additional requirements and best practices.

As part of a nationally coordinated effort from Swimming Canada and its members, all registered coaches are required to complete a series of screening requirements including the CSCA Screening Disclosure Form and Criminal Record Checks.

Clubs should ensure they are taking the right steps to thoroughly screen potential candidates for both full-time coaching and volunteer positions. Proper screening includes background checks, useful interview questions, and following up on references.
