Swim 21

Northallerton ASC have achieved  Swim21 Essentials and are working towards Swim21 Network status with the Moors Swim Squad and also in the Hambleton District. The swim21 accreditation is the ASA’s recognised kitemark for the development of effective, ethical and sustainable affiliated clubs.

The opportunity to gain swim21 accreditation is available to all clubs, across any aquatic discipline (including Masters), regardless of size and activity delivered.  swim21 is about creating the best possible swimming experience for all and raising the quality of aquatics provision across all areas.

swim21 club also offers national recognition that clubs are providing a quality service for all members, which is recognised by Sport England i.e. all clubs gaining ASA accreditation will automatically receive Clubmark status. Clubmark is widely recognised by potential funders, schools and other partners that can assist with club growth and development.

In May 2013, swim21 changed to a three module system for recognising quality in aquatic clubs:-

swim21 club Essential is a key module which will support clubs to grow membership, develop volunteers and ensure the sustainability of activity in line with the objective of the club
