Aquaforce Volunteer Awards

Share this page

Every year the ASA uses the Aquaforce Awards as a chance to thank those who dedicate vital hours, days and weeks to our sport. This year, could it be you or your club that are honoured?

Information on the 2014 awards will be circulated shortly and can also be found on the link below.


 Regional winners will be shortlisted for the National Aquaforce Awards. National winners will be announced at the ASA Council Dinner in October.

A National Winner only will be selected for the Club Award.  Representatives from the winning club will be invited to attend the Council Dinner to receive this prestigious award. For the first time in 2013, ‘Celebrating Excellence in Club Volunteering’ will offer the opportunity for club’s to self nominate.

For all nominations:

  • The nominated group/individual must be a member of the ASA and belong to an ASA club which is swim21 accredited or working towards.
  • The individual must still be acting in the role for which he/she is being nominated for ;  individuals who receive payment in return for their services will not be eligible.
  • All nominated volunteers will receive a limited edition Aquaforce Volunteers Pin Badge on the provision that an address is provided.
  • Regional and National Winners will be selected only from the information provided in the nomination form, we therefore would encourage nominators to provide as much detail as possible.
