Reverse the new restrictions to Technical/Performance Suits for 11/U Swimmers at SV Events
This petition had 126 supporters
• For 11/U swimmers to have the same swim wear choices in Swimming Victoria Competitions as those age groups who are not restricted.
• To have a sense of empowerment and enjoyment at Swimming Victoria Events
• Children 11 & under are being treated differently from the rest of the swimming community, disengaged of the same fundamental rights at Swimming Victoria events
• To keep young swimmers in our sport, we need to be providing an environment that encourages and supports them by feeling empowered and included by being treated as equals to their older counterparts, this includes having a choice and style of competitive swimwear.
The Swimming Victoria restrictions to 11/U Performance/Technical suit goes against Swimming Australia's Inclusive Swimming Framework Pillar 3: Choice
"There needs to be choice to make inclusion work"
"Everyone deserves to have choice in how they want to participate in sport. In swimming and aquatics there is already a range of choices available. There are choices for people of different ages, genders, and skill levels. There are competitive and non-competitive choices."
Unfortunately the 11/U swimmers have had their choices taken away by Swimming Victoria's new restrictions.
The aim is to have these new restrictions to be overturned to reinstate the 11/U swimmers to have their own choice of competitive swimwear.
