Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) is now known as Swim England

swim englandThe Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) has been rebranded to Swim England as part of a four-year strategy to strengthen the sport and boost participation.

Swimming is England's most popular mass-participation sport, ahead of athletics or cycling, but a 2016 survey found a drop in adult swimming numbers.

The strategy - titled 'Toward a Nation Swimming' - aims for a "significant increase" in participation.

This includes encouraging young people to try other types of aquatic sport.

The strategy document cites six areas of focus:

  • strong leadership and advocacy for the sport
  • greater participation numbers
  • increased diversity
  • the elite talent pathway
  • better motivation for the workforce
  • future sustainability.

'Toward a Nation Swimming' is the first strategy that focuses solely on swimming in England.

New Proposed swim school operations currently being reviewed

 

As part of our changes we are also looking at reducing our teacher to pupil ratios at our lower ability stages to offer an even better and even more personal service to all our customers. (e.g. 7:1 from our Mayfield facilites) rather than (8:1/9:1) with the proposed pupil to teacher ratio change we will be adjusting the cost to £7.55p. We belive this is still value for money even though their is a cost rise with have also lowered our ratios. Rather than increasing both. Our sessions will also continue in private sessions with no other distractions from neighburing lessons.

 

More information can be given by contacting us through our contact page.

 

Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information.
