for officiating our meets. The rules apply from dual meets, through
National Championship meets. Here is a link to the 2016 rulebook in PDF
2016 USA-S Rulebook. Of course, there are a number of other rules that
we follow, including

Swimming Addendum to the Rules That Govern YMCA Competitive Sports.
