Welcome to swim21 club!
swim21 Club is the ASA’s aquatic quality mark for the development of effective, ethical and sustainable ASA affiliated clubs.
In May 2013, swim21 changed to a three-module system for recognising quality in aquatic clubs.
Swim21 club Essential is a key module which will support clubs to grow membership, develop volunteers and ensure the sustainability of activity in line with the objective of the club.
The additional two modules are in development and due for launch in December 2013. They will focus on the athlete pathway and club networks respectively.
Why the changes?
The fundamental changes to swim21 club Essential ensure that is it pan discipline and relevant for all ASA affiliated clubs. The ASA has a commitment to achieving its equity targets throughout the sport. swim21 is no different and the ASA is keen to support clubs in the shared objective of widening the participation base and in turn the performance of the sport as a whole.
British Swimming and ASA chief executive David Sparkes said: “The swim21 club Essential module begins any club’s journey towards establishing a strong footing with a suitable offer to its club members; it places the club in a position to grow in depth across its members and workforce.
“Swim21 club Essential is designed to be accessible to all clubs across all disciplines and sizes, to be seen as a valued club development tool and one that is recognised as a quality mark across the industry. I challenge every club to work through swim21 and see the benefits it creates your club and the wider community.”
