Workshop Focus: Big Splash and Beyond

13 October 2011

With just over a week to go until the ASA Swimming Conference 2011, we are going to take a closer look at the workshops that have been designed to inspire you with forward thinking and give you a fresh perspective on your club activities, with the ultimate aim of helping to make your club fit for the future.

Booking is now open for the ASA Swimming Conference 2011, which is set to take place on Saturday 22 October at the Crowne Plaza, Nottingham.

The conference will incorporate a full day’s programme with keynote guest speakers, David Sparkes (Chief Executive of the ASA), Sir Keith Mills (Deputy Chair of LOCOG) and the Youth Forum, and a ‘Communication Zone’ where you will be able to speak to ASA staff about matters that concern you and your club.

In addition to the conference programme, there is the opportunity to attend two workshops, which include:

  • Grow your swimming club: how to transform your swimming club and make it vibrant, visible and viable
  • Shaping your future with the IoS
  • Big Splash and beyond
  • Developing young leaders
  • ASA 2013-2017 strategy – Fully Booked
  • Young volunteers: you are the future!
  • Online membership system
  • swim21: shaping the future
  • The swimmers' journey: maximise results from your Learn to Swim programme to retain more swimmers – Fully Booked

This week we are going to take a closer look at the Big Splash and Beyond, which will be delivered by Emma Griffin, Head of Marketing and Communications, and Kelly McHugh, Marketing and PR Manager.

The session will provide a comprehensive update on the Big Splash campaign including details of the Big Splash Mile for Sport Relief, and how clubs can get involved. The interactive workshop will also provide an opportunity for the delegates to help shape the future of the campaign.

With London 2012 just around the corner, a Senior Broadcast Journalist from the BBC will present the second part of the session and provide practical advice on how clubs can help raise their profile through the BBC and the wider media. During the workshop the BBC will also hold a question and answer session.
