Meet photographers on deck

The only photographers allowed on deck during a meet are professional photographers contracted by the Waunakee Swimming team or press photographers approved by the team.

All people on deck need to be USA Swimming registered, including photographers.

USA Swimming child protection rules (available at www.usaswimming.org/protect) include photography we allow. YOU MAY NOT POST PHOTOS OF SWIMMERS IN A PUBLICLY ACCESSIBLE ONLINE OR PRINT ENVIRONMENT, SHARING SITE, WEB COLLECTION, OR FILE SERVER. Valid uses for newspaper reports, swim team websites, or other news media are permitted. When in doubt, please contact us.

  • Password-protected access should be emailed to the swim team board for distribution.
  • Do not solicit parents at the meet.
