Locker Room Policy


The following guidelines are designed to maintain personal privacy as well as to reduce the risk of misconduct in locker rooms and changing areas.



The following is a description of our practice and competition facilities to allow athletes and their families to plan their use:

We practice at: Tyler ISD Aquatic Center 3013 Earl Campbell Pkwy

This location has: A men's and women's locker room as well as two restrooms. This is a changing area and locker room is dedicated to our swimmers.



Coaches and staff make every effort to recognize when an athlete goes to the locker room or changing area during practice and competition and, if they do not return in a timely fashion, we will check on the athlete’s whereabouts.  Parents are prohibited from entering locker rooms and changing areas unless it is truly necessary.  In those instances, it should only be a same‐sex parent.  If this is necessary, parents should let the coach or administrator know about this in advance. The locker room will be cleared of all other athletes. If an athlete needs assistance with his or her uniform or gear (for example, a child under the age of eight), or an athlete’s disability warrants assistance, then we ask that parents let the coach or an administrator know beforehand that he or she will be helping the athlete. TRAC has staggered practices, with different groups arriving and departing throughout the day. It is therefore not practical to constantly monitor locker rooms and changing areas over this extended course of time. While we do not post staff inside or at the doors of the locker rooms and changing areas, we do make occasional sweeps of these areas. Staff conduct these sweeps, with women checking on female locker rooms, and men checking on male locker rooms.


USE OF CELL PHONES AND OTHER MOBILE RECORDING DEVICES Cell phones and other mobile devices with recording capabilities, including voice recording, still cameras and video cameras increase the risk for different forms of misconduct in locker rooms and changing areas. 


The USA Swimming Athlete Protection Policies prohibit the use of such devices in the locker room or other changing area: 305.3 Use of audio or visual recording devices, including a cell phone camera, is not allowed in changing areas, rest rooms or locker rooms. 




If you or your swimmer observe or suspect an abuse of locker room privileges, you should immediately notify the coach on deck. If there is no coach available, please call or email [email protected] or [email protected]

When an incident is reported to TRAC, the Head Coach will initiate an investigation and notify the parents of the swimmers involved. The Head Coach has the right to suspend swimmers from participation in practice and meets until the investigation is completed. The Head Coach will determine if a swimmer has violated the Locker Room Policy. If a swimmer has violated any part of TRAC’s Locker Room Policy the following repercussions will occur. 

  • 1st offense: We give the swimmer a verbal warning. 
  • 2nd offense: We suspend the swimmers locker room privileges. The swimmer will not be allowed in the locker room for one full month from which the second offense incident occurred. 

Note; swimmers who are not allowed to use the locker rooms can use the outdoor showers and family restrooms if needed. 

3rd offense: The swimmer will be reported to the Tyler Independent School District. The school district will determine the swimmers consequences.
