In compliance with YMCA and USA Swimming Athlete Protection Policies, the use of mobile devices with recording capabilities are prohibited in the locker rooms.  Cell phones and other mobile devices with recording capabilities, including voice recording, still cameras and video cameras increase the risk for different forms of misconduct in locker rooms and changing areas.  This absolutely applies to cell phones even if the person is not using the photo, video or other recording device.  Please understand that the actual use of a photo, video or other recordig device can violate state law as well as team policies and lead to serious consequences.  As per the 2019-20 Team Handbook, cell phones are not allowed on deck at practice or at meets.  While we acknowledge that they are important tools for communication, we insist that they stay stored in the locker room during practice (use a lock on the locker if theft is a concern) and remain out of sight (in a locked locker, bag, or clothing pocket) while on deck at a meet.  Please ensure that all swimmers are aware NOT to use any function on any mobile or recording device whatsoever while in our locker rooms or in locker rooms at away meets.
