Effective for competitions taking place on or after June 1, 2023, Michigan Swimming will no longer require clubs to submit a COVID-19 Waiver & Indemnification Agreement as a condition of receiving a sanction. Any agreements already submitted will remain in effect.


As the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) allowed the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency to expire, it was incumbent upon us to evaluate our remaining COVID-19 procedures. We live in a world very different than in the early days of the pandemic, and we no longer believe this measure is required. This marks the end of our COVID-19 temporary requirements for sanctioning and approval.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.


Kind regards,


Joe Gazzarato
