Introducing SwimMark accreditation for clubs

SwimMark accreditation is Swim England’s quality standard for clubs.  It recognises high standards of governance, sustainability and effectiveness.

Any affiliated Swim England club can apply for the accreditation, regardless of your club’s size or the disciplines you deliver.

What is SwimMark about?

  • Creating the best possible swimming experience for all
  • Raising the quality of aquatics provision across all areas.

SwimMark is the primary module for clubs, helping you to achieve good governance, grow membership, develop volunteers and ensure your activity is sustainable and in line with your club objectives. It is accredited every two years with a health check inbetween.
