swim21 –  is the ASA’s quality mark for clubs.swim21 is about creating the best possible swimming experience for all and raising the quality of aquatics provision across all areas. swim21 also offers national recognition that clubs are providing a quality service for all members, which is recognised by Sport England. 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.


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.

- swim21 club Network is the second of the three modules to be   

  launched. The aim is to   quality assure clubs who work

  collaboratively to deliver the athlete pathway in their area,

  and ensure that athletes meet their potential and are retained in the   

  sport.

- swim21 Performance Environment provides a benchmark for clubs   

   coaching high level  athletes across all four disciplines (Swimming,

   Diving, Waterpolo and Synchro).  It is  awarded to those clubs who

   can demonstrate that the pathways, physical environment,

   coaching practices and support services are all in place for athletes

   to reach the pinnacle of their aquatic sport, and that the club has

   historical evidence, to illustrate athletes regularly achieve success 

   through this performance programme.
