Updated Equipment Specifications for Sanctioned Competitions
posted on 12/22/2021

A process has been agreed upon to thoroughly reassess the current equipment specifications for sanctioned competitions and amend the R&P to allow exceptions to the ideal specifications listed, without threatening athlete safety and following a formal approval process.

  • For the remainder of the 2021-2022 season, a set of interim modified specifications have been published that are required to be met by all meet hosts. Any situations outside of these modifications will now require an application to the PC for approval in advance of the meet, with approval given if the proposed modification is considered to be still safe. The interim specs are published within Section IV of the R&P here, and are available in highlighted and clean versions.
  • For the 2022-2023 season, a working group including equipment personnel will be assembled from January 2022 to create a final version of equipment specifications, keeping in mind the same constraints and requirements and based on best practice and expert opinion. The final equipment specs will be published as part of the 2022-2023 R&P in September 2022.
