Stalybridge Swimming Club, based in the North West, is an ASA swim21 Essential club, having first gained the NGB kite mark in 2012.
The main reasons that the club decided to undertake swim21 was to ensure they were following correct guidelines, especially in relation to dealing with children, to ensure their volunteers were appropriately qualified and to be recognised as a quality club locally/nationally.
New research shows that parents of up and coming sports stars have to spend as much as £27,000 a year to support their child’s training.
This has led to some of England’s best young talent dropping out and not pursuing their sporting ambitions. Today, Sport England launches a new scheme, Backing the Best, to support talented new athletes.
