To All American Swimming Coaches Association Member Coaches…


Let me state this as clearly and simply as possible: If you are not a licensed massage therapist, you have no business providing massages to young athletes at any time or location.

Legal recommendations from a number of cases in recent years have made this very clear: “massage” is on the slippery slope to perceived or real sexual misconduct.

It is not a part of coaching. Please take heed and govern yourself accordingly.
