 Athlete Protection Training (APT)

Since 2019, USA Swimming adult athlete members have been required to complete Athlete Protection Training (APT) as a requirement of membership. In 2019, USA Swimming built in an administrative grace period to give athletes 30 days after their 18th birthday to complete the requirement. Effective September 1, 2022, there will no longer be a 30-day administrative grace period. Going forward, any 17-year-old athlete who has not completed the APT requirement by their 18th birthday will not be a USA Swimming member in good standing unless or until the APT requirement is completed. This includes eligibility to compete in USA Swimming sanctioned meets, club practices and all other related activities. Athletes will continue to receive an email notification reminder of the APT requirement 30 days prior to their 18th birthday as well as a reminder on their 18th birthday.

All USA Swimming members aged 18 years old and older are required to complete APT annually. This is the individual’s responsibility and includes both athlete and non-athlete members.

Frequently Asked Questions

 FAQ - What if someone doesn't have a credit card? A pre-paid gift card, or virtual gift card, may work. Google Pay and Bank Transfers are other options. 

FAQ - What if my club wants to pay? Clubs may need to get a little creative here. The above question may answer this as well. If the club wants to pay without reimbursing, they would need to provide a form of payment. Registrations need to be completed by the individual registering (or a parent).  

FAQ - There are people on my non-athlete roster no longer affiliated with my club. How do I get them off? If a club admin looks at the non-athlete roster, selects the edit option, and then initiates a transfer to OR/UN, they will move off of the club.

FAQ - I wear multiple hats as a coach, official, board member, etc. What do I register as? All of them! In the new system, you will select any membership category that applies to you. You are only billed for one USA Swimming membership. LSC fees apply to each membership selected. The price at check out will show this for you.

FAQ - I don't want to register, but I want to view my kids. How do I do that? On 9/1 users will be able to head to, create a new account, and proceed accordingly. Once your account is created, you will be able to enter your family on your dashboard. In order to facilitate adding family members, their new ID will be required.
