The need for safety awareness has never been greater. Major and minor accidents have a direct impact on the lives of those involved and some incidents can have repercussions for the entire rowing community. USRowing stresses that everyone review the safety video once a year.
Beginning in 2015, all USRowing member organizations must have athlete safety policies in place to safeguard children and adult club members. Organizations need to certify that they can provide USRowing with a copy of their policy and update their policy annually. The primary aim of the Safe Sport policy is to protect children from sexual abuse and harassment. The GMRC Board appoints a Safety Officer annually who is charged with implementing this SafeSport program and ensuring all members are aware of its existence and provisions for dealing with abusive situations.
