Key Information
The current COVID-19 sanctioning and policy is available here

Michigan Swimming has largely returned to standard operating procedures for sanctioned and approved competitions as outlined in the Michigan Swimming, Inc. Rules and Procedures, with limited exceptions.


Key policy changes, as of 1/19/2022:

  • Removed provisions to require COVID-19 supplemental sanction documentation

  • Maintained provisions to require meet hosts include assumption of risk disclaimer in meet announcement and submit indemnification waiver to LSC

  • Maintained provisions that permit use of the minimum required number of officials as defined in the USA Swimming Rulebook, including continuing the suspension of the requirement to use a Deck Referee to help member clubs reduce expenditures associated with hosting sanctioned or approved competition


Reminder: The Deck Referee position is permanently not required by Michigan Swimming as of October 9. 2022. Thus, Michigan Swimming will not pay for one at any sanctioned or approved competition and hosts are not eligible to deduct those expenses from a meet financial report.


In accordance with B.Res. 2022-01-001, all requests for official interpretation of this policy shall be submitted in writing to the Chairman of the Michigan Swimming, Inc. Board of Directors at [email protected].
