Research into swim schools prompts further support

12 November 2010

Results of a recent online survey into the business needs of swim schools have provided the ASA with ways in which the learn to swim industry can be further developed and supported.

Armed with all the facts and figures on how swim schools operate, their learn to swim programmes and badge schemes and what resources they have available, the national governing body can provide the right level of support in the right areas.

In return for providing these key pieces of information, respondents were entered into a prize draw. In addition all contributors benefit from a discount on awards and merchandising from the ASA Awards centre.

Top prize winner Una Mulligan-Quenby of U Swim in West Walton in Norfolk is looking forward to attending the Kellogg’s ASA Swimtastic Awards ceremony next week with five guests, including her swimming-mad young daughter.

“I was genuinely surprised when I received the phone call saying I had won. I just filled out the survey to help the ASA, I didn’t even know what the top prize was, I just saw that you could get a discount and I thought that would be handy. I am really looking forward to the awards ceremony and seeing all the winners and so are my guests. My daughter is looking forward to getting in the pool and she said she would practice hard for it.”

Liz Impey of Brighton-based ‘The Little Swim School’ received vouchers for free attendance at three CPD seminars as the second prize.
