To support the USA swimming Minor Athlete Abuse Protection Policy, SI is implementing new rules around the use of team and personal canopies and tents at all SI sanctioned and “novice” meets and team events effective immediately. The intent of this policy is to ensure visibility and safety of our athletes at all times. The requirements are as follows:

  1. The preference is that all canopies are open on all four sides at all times.
  2. If weather does not support this, then there are two options for enclosure:
    1. all four sides can be enclosed with a minimum of one side having a fully transparent enclosure that is public facing
    2. if non transparent sides are used, a minimum of one side must be open and public facing at all times
  3. If tents are used, then at all times, the opening into the tent must be secured in such a way that there is visibility into the tent at all times.
