Medication

When you join the club the swimmer will be asked to declare any medication that they take. This must also be declared to the ASA. Forms are available from our membership secretary. It is also necessary to tell your General Practitioner that you are a swimmer as when being prescribed medication it will help them to decide on which medication to treat you with.

All swimmers are subject to anti-doping legislation. Consequently swimmers may be asked to provide a sample by the ASA for testing. Parent / guardian consent is required in the case of any swimmer under the age of 18 but everyone is subject to the legislation, regardless of age.
