Club awarded Swim 21 accreditation

Warriors of Warrington Swimming Club welcome in the new swimming season with the news that they have successfully obtained the nationally recognised Swim 21 accreditation in both Skills Development & Competitive Development.

Swim 21 is the ASA’s Club Development model - a planning tool, based on the principles of Long Term Athlete Development, enabling clubs to help athletes, coaches and volunteers to achieve their full potential.  It focuses particularly on the needs of athletes - striving to provide them with the best possible support and environment.

 Swim 21 Accreditation is a ‘Quality Mark’. It recognises nationally and regionally the clubs that are committed to providing safe, effective and quality services for the benefit of their members.  Swim 21 Accreditation is available to ASA clubs and positions the club at one or more of the four levels of:

  • Teaching
  • Skill Development
  • Competitive Development
  • Performance

The club has been working towards this accreditation for over 2 years and has been successful due to the high standard of Swimming in the town. It now completes a pathway for Long term Athlete Development for swimming in Warrington.

A big thank you to all our Coaches especially Darren & Swimmers who have made Swim 21 accreditation possible as it is through their achievements at County, Regional & National level this has been possible along with the help of all our volunteers who run this club.
