The ASA and the RNLI are looking for volunteers and swimming teachers to deliver Swim Safe 2015 at a number of locations across the UK including Boscombe this summer.
This is the third successive year that Swim Safe has run across the UK’s beaches and lakes, with the 2013/14 programme seeing over 6,000 children take part and learn how to be safe in different water environments.
The programme offers free improver swimming sessions and beach and water safety advice for children aged 7-14. Most young people learn to swim in an indoor pool which is a safe and familiar environment.

Following the withdrawal of funding by UK Sport into Women’s Water Polo the ASA decided to commission a full review of Water Polo within England. The aim of the review was to look at all aspects of the game, from grass roots development, through the talent pathway to elite performance. The review covered the governance structure, development and talent programmes and the competition pathway.
The review was presented to the ASA Sport Governing Board and members of the water polo community on Sunday, 25th January 2015 and was well received by attendees.
