About Blind Swimming

Tapping” is the most important assistance required for visually impaired swimmers. This is a communication technique from the sighted partner to the swimmer to indicate when he or she is reaching the end of the pool and must react by executing a turn or making a final touch. “Tappers” are positioned at each end of the pool and using a specialized rod touches or “taps” the swimmer.
