•Diving starts shall be permitted only in designated sprint lanes.

•Only one-way swimming from the start end of sprint lanes is permitted.

•Notices or barriers must be placed on starting blocks to indicate no diving during warm-up.


•Kick Boards, Pull-Buoys, Ankle Bands, and Snorkels are permitted for use in the scheduled warm-up time.

•Meet Management may permit use of tubing or cord assisted sprinting in designated lanes and during specific times of the warm-up only. Coaches are responsible for equipment reliability and use.

•Hand paddles, drag chutes, and flippers / fins arenot permitted during any warm-up at any time.


•Swimmers witnessed by a Safety Marshal diving or entering the water in a dangerous fashion will be removed without warning from their first event following the warm-up period in which the violation occurred.

SNC Swimwear Rules

ALL swimmers participating in a SNC designated meet or provincially sanctioned meets shall be required to comply with swimwear rule GR 5 as follows:

GR 5 – Swimwear

GR 5.1 The swimwear (swimsuit, cap and goggles) of all competitors shall be in good moral taste and suitable for the individual sports disciplines and not to carry any symbol which may be considered offensive.

GR 5.2 All swimsuits shall be non-transparent.

CGR A swimmer may wear only one swimsuit in competition, and shall observe all FINA

regulations related to swimwear as stated in the FINA Bylaws and Rules

GR 5.3 The referee of a competition has the authority to exclude any competitor whose swimsuit or body symbols do not comply with this Rule.

GR 5.4 Before any swimwear of new design, construction or material is used in competition, the manufacturer of such swimwear must submit the swimwear to FINA and obtain approval of FINA.

FINA BL 8.3 From January 1, 2010 swimwear for men shall not exceed above the navel nor below the knee, and for women, shall not cover the neck, extend past the shoulder, nor shall extend below knee. All swimsuits shall be made from textile materials.

SNC has made the following interpretations for GR 5:

All swimwear used in competition in Canada must appear on the FINA approvedlist with the following exception;

Where a swimwear manufacturer has not submitted swimwear to FINA for approval due to the swimwear no longer being in production, SNC reserves the right to allow such swimwear where it can be confirmed that the swimwear conforms to the shape, design and material conditions outline in FINA BL 8.3 (above).

Under GR 5.3 wherein it is stated “the competitor must wear a swimsuit in one or two pieces…” SNC interprets this to mean a swimmer is limited to wearing a single suit only and where the suit is “two pieces” that the pieces do not overlap each other and are distinct units (ie/ bikini style).

All Canadian Record applications will be reviewed to ensure compliance with GR 5. A Declaration of Swimwear must be submitted with the application to ensure compliance.

All foreign swimmers competing in Canada will be required to comply with GR 5

Any swimmer not complying with GR 5 shall be disqualified.
