EA is governed by Illinois law and its articles of incorporation, bylaws and policies as a 501(c) not-for-profit corporation. Additionally, EA is bound by the policies of its governing bodies, USA Swimming and Illinois Swimming, Inc. EA considers its policies on an ongoing basis and revisions occur for many reasons. Parents interested in working on team policy and management should consider volunteering for the Board of Directors or in another position. Swimmers might consider work on or with the EA Swimmer Council.

EA's bylaws are available under the Parents/Documents tab. The team handbooks is also available under the Parents/Documents tab.

The following are links to EA policies that are currently in force.

To the extent that EA has no policy governing an issue, the policies of USA Swimming will typically govern and these can be found in the 2022 USA Swimming Rulebook or in the 2022 Illinois Swimming Rules & Regulations
