A Guide for Swimmers and Parents
One of our goals is the inclusion of swimmers with a disability. We welcome you to join a club, compete in meets, and participate in educational activities such as camps and clinics. As people with a disability know, inclusion is not always easy. You may be the only swimmer with a disability on your club. You may encounter coaches and officials who know relatively little about disability and inclusion. There might be times when you and your parents need to advocate for your rights.

Some Disabled swimmers enjoy and benefit from the stimulus of competition, and so they should be encouraged to take part in Galas. However, swimmers should not be bullied or coerced into taking part if they do not want to, since as well as simply not wishing to take part, they may also have other medical reason for not being able to take part.
