Weston Swimming Injury Policy

Purpose:  Protect the health of the swimmers and maintain club programming.

Who:  Any swimmer who sustains an injury and is unable to fully participate in training and competition.

 Procedures to Be Followed:

  • A physician must be consulted within 7 days of the injury occurring
  • The physician’s diagnosis and written rehabilitation program must be given to the swimmer’s coach before being permitted to practice again.
    • A parent summary of what the swimmer can and cannot do will not satisfy this requirement.
    • The medical note should cover limits on practicing, competing and an estimate of a return to full practicing.
  • If the physician’s training restrictions impact the training of other swimmers, the swimmer may be moved into another squad on a temporary basis. 
  • If the coach decides that it would be detrimental to the swimmer if they trained, they will not be allowed into the water and/or dryland. This is at the sole discretion of the Head Coach.
  • Once the swimmer has received written permission from physician to return to full training and competing, the swimmer will resume training with their own squad.

~Swimmers and Guardian(s) have a responsibility of ensuring adherence to this policy.~
