Employment Guidance for Aquatics Clubs

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.

A copy of this documentation can be obtained by officers of ASA affiliated clubs by emailing renewals@swimming.org with your name, email address, club name and club officer position.

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 with regard to this can be found on the HMRC website and the ACAS website.
