(1/7/2010) FINA ISSUES FINAL 2010 SUIT LIST
On January 4, 2010, FINA, the international governing body for the sport, issued its final list of suits approved for use in competition in 2010. However, USA Swimming expects to receive further guidance from FINA later this month regarding the list. Until such time as we receive that guidance, USA Swimming will continue to allow all swimsuits which are either listed on the final FINA list or meet the criteria below:1. Swimsuits for men may not extend above the navel or below the knee and for women may not cover the neck or extend past the shoulders or below the knee
2. No zippers or other fastening devices are allowed except for a waist tie on a brief or jammer.
3. Suits must be of textile material and must not be made of any rubberized type of material such as polyurethane or neoprene.
If you have questions regarding this, please send an email to USA Swimming.
(10/23/2009) KING INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY
In the event of inclement weather, practice cancellations will be posted on the KING website by 11:00 am of that day and emailed to all current King Aquatic Club registered members through the active TeamUnify KING database.
KING makes any and all reasonable attempts to make practice available to its members. Some pools may be closed as their operational procedures are tied to their local school district’s closures. Practices may be moved to other open pools due to facility closures of this nature.
Safe travel conditions must be a priority for everyone. Please use good judgment in considering practice attendance during challenging weather conditions. If KING practice is being held during periods of inclement weather, that does not mean KING guarantees safe travel.
Note: If you are not receiving emails from KING, you will not receive practice cancellations as the same system will be used.
