Please find attached new guidance issued by the ASA Swimming Management Group in relation to swimsuits for individuals who as a result of either their religious beliefs or a pre-existing medical condition would like to wear a swimsuit which would otherwise be considered “illegal” at a competitive swimming event. This guidance now applies to all levels of ASA licensed meet (1,2,3 and 4) and all ASA National Events (Summer, Winter, County Team and Masters Championships).
The document has been added to the ASA Library - http://www.swimming.org/library/documents/2337/download
As with any guidance it has been written to be as clear as possible but it will require the use of common sense by officials in its application. However, please contact me in the first instance with any specific queries.
