Alberta Artistic Swimming believes that everyone in the sport has the right to enjoy the sport at whatever level or position they participate. Athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers have the right to participate in a safe and inclusive training and competitive environment that is free of abuse, harassment or discrimination.
Alberta Artistic Swimming is committed to providing a safe training environment to all participants. This includes providing access to information about concussion education and management, anti-doping, responsible coaching, rule and policy development and alternatives for reporting Safe Sport complaints or breaches of the CAS (AAS) Conduct Policy.
Alberta Artistic Swimming has secured the services of W&W Dispute Resolution Services to act as an independent third party for all Safe Sport complaints and complaints related to breaches of the CAS (AAS) Conduct Policy. This third party provides confidential, expert, and objective facilitation of complaints. These may be directed by email to W & W Dispute Resolution Services.
Alternatively, individuals may contact Canada Artistic Swimming’s independent Safe Sport Officer, who can guide an individual through the Canada Artistic Swimming and Alberta Artistic Swimming complaint process or explore other options.
