As a parent you play a key role in ensuring your children are safe when they are placed in the care of a swimming club.

To aid you in this the ASA has developed a Child Protection Policy and Procedure. It will also help you as a parent prevent poor practice and encourage and identify good practice at your local club.

While the ASA is confident that the majority of its clubs, and specifically those with a swim21 accreditation, have very good, proactive child welfare policies, we acknowledge that sometimes problems can develop that require action.

So to ensure you as a parent feel reassured that your club is a safe environment in which to leave your child or young person, we have developed guidance based on the Child Protection Policy and Procedures.

Below you will find links to information such as who to contact, and advice on raising issues of poor practice or child welfare. For greater detail download the full policy using the link above.

Additionally, we recommend you download a copy of the Department for Culture Media and Sport’s (DCMS) Helping keep your child safe in sport.

Finally, the ASA has created a detailed signposting document answering in depth the question: Where do I turn if I have a problem concerning my club? Click here to download it.
