USA Swimming works hard to keep our sport drug free. All medication, inhalers, perscriptions, etc. are governed by rules. Failure to follow these rules can result in an athelte being removed from the sport. Swimmers/Parents are strongly encouraged to visit USA Swimming and get familiar with the rules.
Also be aware that many have accidently tested positive for banned substances found in supplements and medications that they assumed were OK. The Food and Drug Administration does not regulate the supplement industry, so you are taking your chances with any supplement. Do not assume necessary or required medication is acceptable. Please review all the rules and call the appropriate number listed on the USA Swimming Website if you have further questions.
Staying "Clean" is the responsibility of every athlete and his/her parents.
