Supplements / Physique Assessment

In light of recent media attention on the use of supplements by our elite athletes and the collection of body composition information, here are some resources to help you and your swimmers:

  1. Supplements: Swimming Victoria has developed some excellent Anti-Doping & Supplement Information located here. This includes the 2019 Prohibited List, a decision tree for choosing supplements and links to further information resources for athletes and parents. Swimming Australia Anti-Doping information can be found here.
  2. Physique Assessment: Please visit this page to read about the best practices for physique assessment from Swimming Australia. This fact sheet gives a summary of assessment techniques, equipment and communication considerations when collecting body composition data. This information is included on the Coach Policies & Best Practice page of the Swimming Australia website.

For further information, please contact your local Accredited Sports Dietitian (SDA) or Accredited Exercise Physiologist/Sport Scientist (AEP/ASpS).
