Good Club Guides

To ensure volunteers make the most of their time with the club, the ASA has produced a range of practical, user-friendly guides to help them along the way.

These are the Good Club Guides; access the guides by clicking one of the links below. Most roles are covered, from chairperson to press officer.

Hear British Swimming Presentation Director Andrew Marvin talk about the role of swim meet announcer in the video to the left.

Accompanying the guides are targeted learning resources to enable volunteers to get the most out of their role with the club. They contain quizzes, tips on fulfilling your role and points for discussion.

Each guide comes as either full colour or in a black and white, printer-friendly format. All guides are in PDF, while the learning resources are Microsoft Powerpoint.

Please email volunteering@swimming.org if you encounter any problems.
