Employment guidance for ASA clubs

Share this page

The ASA in conjunction with the Institute of Swimming (IOS), the British Swimming Coaches Association (BSCA) and Browne Jacobson LLP has produced employment contract documentation and guidance notes.

The following three documents are available - Contract for Services template, Employment Contract template and Guidance on Legal and Taxation Issues arising on the engagement of swimming coaches and teachers. These templates may be used by Club Officers to appoint potential employees and coaches on an employed or self employed basis. They are available to download via ‘BJ Access’, Browne Jacobson’s web based document sharing portal.

The ASA Legal Affairs department would, in particular, draw to the attention of clubs the legal and taxation implications of the distinction between employed and self employed teachers and coaches.  Further information can be found on our website at:


Access to the ‘BJ Access’ portal can only be obtained by Officers of ASA affiliated clubs  by emailing renewals@swimming.org with your name, email address, club name and club officer position.

Once we have verified your membership and club officer role we will register your details with Browne Jacobson and a ‘BJ Access’ invitation email will be sent to you which will allow you to create a personal login for the email address provided.

Queries can be directed to renewals@swimming.org.
