Photography Protection Policy


All photographs must observe generally accepted standards of decency in particular:

• Action shots should be a celebration of the sporting activity and not a sexualized image in a sporting context.

• Action shots should not be taken or retained where the photograph reveals a torn or displaced swimsuit.

• Photographs should not be taken from behind swimming blocks at the start of a race or exhibit a child climbing out of the swimming pool.

• Photographs should not be taken in locker‐rooms or bathrooms.

A parent has a right to refuse to have their children photographed and such refusal shall not be used as grounds for denying the children entry into a swim meet.  

If a parent wishes to opt out of any photographs taken at swim meets or other Water Rat hosted events or opt out of the use of videos for training purposes only, please fill out the form provided in the following link and return it to the Team Administrator [email protected]Click here for the opt out form.
