Any suit that does not have the FINA logo on it is approved for 12-Under use. There are a handful of suits in the market that have the FINA logo that would be considered legal for age group competition because they do not meet the definition of what is deemed a technical suit. These suits and only these suits will bear an additional check mark logo developed by USA Swimming to indicate that the suit is compliant with the rule. This check mark will be placed to the left or right of the FINA logo on the suit. A picture of the check mark logo is below.
EXCEPTIONS: There are a handful of suits currently in the market (as of 8/31/2020) that do have the FINA logo but do not have a green check mark and are eligible for 12 and unders. Please go to the USA Swimming Site to see this list by brand.
