South West swim21 clubs scoop sports awards

24 September 2010

Two prominent swim21 accredited clubs are celebrating their success at receiving awards at the recent Wiltshire and Swindon Sports Awards 2010.

Children’s Coach of the Year was presented to Sharon Carling, who co-ordinates and teaches the learn to swim programme at Bradford on Avon Swimming Club. 

It was a double celebration for this south west club when they were also announced joint winners of Most Inclusive Club of the year in recognition of their achievements in implementing a specific disability session into their training programmes, giving access to the sport for young people with physical and learning disabilities.

West Wiltshire Diving Club were presented with a Highly Commended award for Sports Club/Team of the Year in recognition of the excellent quality training, competitive and development opportunities provided to local divers at all levels.

This is the first year of the Wiltshire and Swindon Sports Awards, organised in partnership by Wiltshire Council, Wiltshire and Swindon Activity and Sports Partnership, Swindon Borough Council, and NHS Wiltshire. The awards recognise and honour the work and achievements of sports clubs, volunteers, coaches and schools across the whole of Wiltshire and Swindon. 

Councillor Stuart Wheeler, Cabinet member for sport, leisure and culture said:

"We know that tremendous work is done week in, week out across the county and we wanted to recognise that work and the people that make it happen. Sport plays a major contribution to our health and wellbeing and is going to be even more in the spotlight in the run up to the 2012 Olympics. These awards honoured and celebrated the superb sporting achievements in Wiltshire and Swindon.”
