Below is the meeting agenda for the NCS Fall House of Delegates meeting to be held via ZOOM at 1:00 pm on Sunday, Oct 4, 2020. The ZOOM link for this and other HOD weekend meetings has been posted on the NCS Fall HOD Weekend Meeting Schedule.
The Safe Sport / Operational Risk Coordinator Role is directly elected every two years by the HOD.
With the unplanned recent departure of our Safe Sport / Operational Risk Coordinator, we will hold a special election at the virtual HOD to fill the one remaining year of the two year term.
Due to the timing of the departure, we will nominate candidates from the floor at virtual HOD.
To ensure no gap in coverage for this important role, Claire Donahue from TAC has been appointed as the interim Safe Sport / Operational Risk Coordinator. Claire has also expressed interest in being nominated for election.
All nominations are welcome. Responsibilities of the Safe Sport / Operational Risk Committee led by the Coordinator include:
• Coordinate and oversee the implementation of effective ongoing educational programs for all athlete members, their parents, coaches, volunteers and local clubs as provided by USA Swimming;
• Be the primary contact for the club members to share information about what USA Swimming and other LSCs are doing regarding Safe Sport policies and programs; and to collect, develop and disseminate information on LSC best practices;
• Serve as an information resource for clubs by, among other things, helping to identify and connect them with local educational partners and resources;
• Assist members of the LSC in identification of errors, system failures, and other potentially dangerous activity;
• Provide assistance in developing plans to mitigate occurrences that disrupt LSC operations or events;
• Identify trends that increase LSC operational risk;
• Perform other functions as necessary in the fulfillment of USA Swimming’s continuing efforts to foster safe, healthy and positive environments for all its members
The 2020 NCS Fall HOD and related meetings will be virtual. Details on meeting schedules, voting, etc. will be announced soon.

| USA Swimming Return to Competition Plan Last month, USA Swimming introduced the concept of a crawl, walk, race approach to our return to competition. As part of that return to competition plan, for July 2020, the USA Swimming Board of Directors has approved sanctioning of meets comprised only of athletes and clubs registered within the sanctioning LSC.*|
Furthermore, with the recognition that many of our clubs have limited or no access to facilities, and to maintain a level playing field, times achieved in sanctioned meets during July 2020 may not be used for any USA Swimming programs, camps, or competitions above the LSC level. Competitions above the LSC level include, but are not limited to, Zones, Sectionals, Futures, Junior Nationals, U.S. Open, National Championships and the U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Swimming. LSCs may use times achieved for LSC programs, meet qualifications, etc.
All competition events must conform to local, state, and federal public health guidelines. An LSC shall establish submission deadlines for sanction or approval applications and shall publish such periods, along with relevant instructions and forms.
Given the varying access to facilities and myriad of local requirements, USA Swimming understands that clubs and athletes may not be able to attend or host a traditional sanctioned competition. In the coming weeks, USA Swimming will share new practice-based opportunities for recognition and fun virtual events in which our clubs and athletes can participate.
Every club planning to host or attend a meet must develop a Return to Competition plan. Return to competition can only occur if and when your local authorities have deemed it safe to return to competition. USA Swimming in no way endorses conducting practice or competition in violation of any local, state, or federal guidelines.

(*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.)
