Swimming Rules and Reasons for Disqualification in the Swimmers Guides documents
Amateur Swimming Association Rules
All of the competitions which Vikings attend are governed by ASA (Amateur Swimming Association Rules). These rules are available online at ASA Handbook 2011.
Below is a list of the common reasons for disqualification. Excluding faulty starts.
- Failing to touch the wall at the turn.
- Walking, Freestyle is the only stroke in which you may stand during the race, but you must not step or turn around.
- Failing to break the surface of the water with your head at or before the 15M mark
- Taking arms back beyond the hip line
- Single handed or non simultaneous touch at turn or finish
- Feet not turned outwards at start of kick
- Alternating Leg movement, All movements of arms and legs must be simultaneous and in the same horizontal plane.
- Leaving position on back other than to initiate a turn. If you find that you have turned over along way from the wall you should move your arm slowly. If you can start the turn before it stops moving then you will NOT be disqualified.
- Alternating Leg Kick. Legs need not be at the same level but they must not swap position in the vertical plane.
- Failing to touch the wall with both hands simultaneously at the turn or finish
