Teaching Tuesday: Tech Suit Rules

As we are jumping back into championship season once again, we thought it would be a great time to revisit our Tech Suit policies within USA Swimming. These rules are made in the best interest of the swimmers and they still allow for 12 and unders to perform at their very best.

What is allowed?

  • Sewn seams
  • Textile fabric

What is not allowed?

  • Bonded seam
  • Woven fabric

USA Swimming has put together a list of all the approved 12 and under suits in the link below, so parents are more than encouraged to check it out and be sure that your swimmer is wearing an approved suit for their championship meet this summer.
