Memo from Swimming Canada - New Rules (Sept 2017)

The new FINA rules for swimming (SW rules, GR rules, and Open Water rules) were approved in July 2017 in Budapest and are posted on the FINA website.  Once they are incorporated into the Canadian rulebook and translated, together with the Canadian CSW, CGR, CFR, COW. and PARA rules, the new Canadian Rulebook will be published. That process is nearing completion. Of course, there is still ongoing consultation with the coaches, the SNC staff, EDs, and senior Officials as we put together SNC's CSW, Facilities, Open Water, Para, and National Meet Rules.
