Parents and carers of participants under the age of 18 who wish to take images at events are requested to focus on their own children as much as reasonably possible and to avoid including other children in images, particularly if those images are being shared with family and friends or through social media platforms.

Whilst it is acknowledged that parents / carers wish to celebrate the achievements of their own children when taking part in aquatic events, it should be recognised and respected that other parents / carers may not wish for their child’s image to be taken and shared in this way.
