July 28, 2020 - USA Swimming August Sanctions Update
|As we continue to navigate these challenging times, we remain focused on supporting our teams and members in their return to training and competition.
We are aware of the considerable differences and effects of the COVID-19 crisis across the country and are being mindful of these as we further develop our “crawl, walk, race” strategies, initially introduced in June.
Following input from athletes, coaches, committee volunteers, and staff, the USA Swimming Board of Directors approved the following event sanctions for August 2020:
(*A club, geographically isolated within their LSC, may be granted the opportunity to compete in an adjacent LSC with permission from both the club’s LSC and the adjacent LSC.)

July 28, 2020 - In Water Skills & CPR Certifications
If your In Water Skills (Lifeguarding) and/or CPR expired between March 1, 2020 and July 30, 2020 – you were given an extension by USA Swimming, until July 31, 2020 to get them completed.
The initial July 31st extension date is almost here and many coaches in the country still do not have in water access to update their certifications. So USA Swimming has extended the extension until December 30, 2020.
They emphasize that in states or locales where in Water testing is available, that everyone please get it done as soon as possible – and not use the December extension.
That would be us here in MD…
So if your in water or CPR expired between March 1 and December 30, 2020 – you should be getting the update done as quickly as possible – or as you approach the expiration date..
If either one expired before March 1, 2020 you may not take advantage of the extensions.
All other certifications must be updated on time – before they expire. There is no extension for: APT, Background Checks, CAT, On Line Safety Training for Swim Coaches, FOC 101/201
