Rules & Regulations
This page has been designed as a quick reference guide to any new rule changes and interpretation of rules already in use.  They have been divided into the individual strokes, individual IM and relays for easier access to the interpretation that you might have a question on.  Also included are miscellaneous rule interpretations that come down from USA Swimming.
