Swim England has released the first ever guide to engaging trans people into swimming.

This coincides with the 2017 Rainbow Laces campaign which is currently taking place, celebrating LGB&T inclusion in sport.

The new guide supports pool operators and clubs. It provides insight and advice on giving trans people the best experience of swimming possible.

The guide is designed to broaden understanding of what it means to be trans. It explores language and terminology, outlines what the barriers are for trans people when going swimming, and most importantly, how to address those barriers. It aligns with our Three Frontier model for growing swimming participation.
