Winter Championships Details

Notice to all regarding photography, this includes spectators, swimmers, team managers and coaches.

We would request that any close-up photographs taken of swimmers are in t-shirts/shorts/tracksuits and not just in their costumes.  It means some clubs then can’t post the pictures of their swimmers on the podium as it breaks their social media policy.

Please can you support this by asking your swimmers to wear tracksuits or t-shirt and shorts as a minimum for medal presentations?
