As of October 1, 2021, all athletes, coaches, parents and volunteers MUST wear masks when entering, exiting and while inside all facilities and ONLY athletes 18 and under may remove masks when ‘actively participating in the sport’ whether on dryland or in the pool. Otherwise, athletes are to wear their masks at all times (except in the water). At this time all recreational sports (Artistic Swimming falls into this category whether you are 12-17 or 18+) do not need to show proof of vaccination unless the building they are training in is requiring it, such as facilities in Regina and Saskatoon, which affects ALL of our competitions this season. Visit our COVID-19 page to learn more about how SAS is staying on top of this very important issue.
The Sask Sport Resource Line (including e-support service) provides information, bilingual support, resources and referrals for sport in Saskatchewan regarding possible bullying, abuse, harassment, discrimination or hazing. Visit the Sask Sport website to learn more or call the telephone numbers listed below.
ACTION PLAN FOR A SAFE & INCLUSIVE ENVIRONMENT
It is the duty of Canada Artistic Swimming to provide the tools for athletes to reach their ultimate dream but also to provide a safe & inclusive environment for all, placing the human, ahead of the athlete.
The purpose of this action plan is to be clear about our ambitions. We aim to be a leader in a new and better sport environment. Review all our practices, create new standards, and embrace change.

Lots of great information just for Saskatchewan coaches!
Artistic Swimming is an incredibly strenuous and skillful sport. In fact, a test on all the Olympic sports before the London 2012 Olympic Games found artistic swimmers ranked second to long distance runners in aerobic capacity!
Artistic swimmers need strength to perform twists and lifts and can hold their breath underwater for around a minute.
They also need rhythm and flair to synchronize and interpret the music, which they listen to through underwater speakers.
