TECH SUIT RESTRICTIONS FOR YOUNGER SWIMMERS


Over the last 3 seasons there has been a growing trend amongst swimming federations and
governing bodies around the world to ban or restrict the use of Tech Suits amongst younger age
group swimmers. These Include the USA, various federations in Europe, as well as certain areas of
Australia.

As a result of the growing trend worldwide, and after discussion about some of these factors
listed above, a decision was taken by the NTS Swim board, that as from the 1st of September
2018, NTS as a district will be imposing restrictions to the use of Tech Suits by our younger
swimmers.
