The Young Adult Swing Dance Association encourages events to embrace the following rules and guidelines:
1. All competitors must be under the age of 18
2. Should a partner in an established partnership turn 18, the partnership may petition the event to continue to dance in the Young Adult Division until such time as the youngest turns 18 or the eldest turns 20. At such time they would no longer be eligible to dance in the Young Adult Division.
3. All other rules are at the discretion of the particular event and may be found on their websites.
