How not to get disqualified

As so many of our swimmers are attending the Neate Meet on 3/4 October, and with the JFL Final coming up on 17 October and the Club Champs on 14 November, now seems to be an excellent time to put an emphasis on knowing the rules of swimming.  It is essential that all swimmers understand what is expected of them in a competitive environment.

The full FINA Rules of Swimming can be found here.  For those who prefer the more abbreviated version of the behaviours that are liable to get a swimmer disqualified in a race, and how that happens, you can download the DQ report and FINA DQ codes, and I urge you to do so!

Suzy will be running a drop-in rules clinic/legal-stroke-check during the sessions on Sunday 27 September and Wednesday 30 September for anyone from ANY SQUAD who wants to make sure they understand the rules of the strokes they are swimming at the Neate Meet, or generally.  Please check in to make sure you do everything you can to make your competitive swims count.
