OPEN WATER COMMITTEE

The role of the Open Water Committee is to develop the open water swimming discipline, including events, swimmers, technical officials and volunteers.  The Committee appoints swimmers to Scottish teams and squads.  It licenses open water events on behalf of Scottish Swimming and produces guidance and advice to help run events safely and fairly.  It makes recommendations for changes to Open Water Regulations as necessary.  The Committee organises the Scottish National Open Water Championships and provides support to District open water events.
