Athlete Protection Policy

Capital Rowing Club (CRC) strives for a “One Capital” spirit which includes a respectful, transparent and collaborative environment, consistent with the principles found in the USRowing SafeSport Policy. Within that policy, USRowing encouraged all member organizations to join them in the SafeSport campaign to protect athletes across the country by developing their own policy.

Therefore, CRC as a member organization of USRowing, developed this Athlete Protection Policy to support USRowing and The U.S. Center for SafeSport commitment to building a community where participants can work and learn together in an atmosphere free of emotional, physical, and sexual misconduct. 

While the USRowing SafeSport Policy is focused on Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policies (MAAPP), this policy extends to conduct amongst adults as well.
