The ASA North West Region have updated their course calendar for volunteer courses
Nominations have opened for the ASA Aquatics Awards 2016, the annual celebration of volunteers, athletes, Clubs, Swim Schools and facility operators.
The Awards will be held on Saturday, 26 November in the prestigious Great Hall at the University of Birmingham.
ASA Chief Executive, Adam Paker, said: “The ASA Aquatics Awards bring together people from across all areas of aquatics to celebrate the achievements of those unsung heroes who dedicate so much of their time to teaching, coaching, supporting and participating in our sport.
“We have an incredible range of people involved in swimming and our aquatics sports. This event plays an important role in highlighting all the great work that members of the aquatics community do every day to help the ASA achieve our vision of a nation swimming.”
Set in the University’s original late-Victorian red brick building, the Grand Hall will provide the perfect backdrop to the Awards, which includes a celebration lunch.
A unique and simple event which determines just one thing – who can swim the furthest in 30 minutes!
Open to all swimmers aged 18 – 108+ living in Great Britain. You can compete in your local pool as an individual or as part of a team with your friends, family or colleagues.
In December 2015 the Government published Sporting Future: A New Strategy for an Active Nation.
It sets a bold and ambitious direction for sport policy which has been widely welcomed. It looks beyond simple participation to how sport changes lives and becomes a force for social good.
At its heart are five outcomes: physicalwellbeing, mental wellbeing, individual development, social and community development, and economic development.
Putting this policy into practice to achieve these outcomes will mean significant change for Sport England and for our partners.
