OFFICIALS' MANUAL / GUIDE TO OFFICIATING

The "Guide for Officiating" was compiled by the LSC Official’s Chairs of USA Swimming as a tool for learning, consistency, training and application of judgment. It should be used in conjunction with the rulebook and not as a standalone document.

Below you will find the complete manual, also broken down by section.
