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.  Parents can consent or refuse the use of photography of their children in a secure fashion when registering their children to participate on the team.
