What Is Swim Mark ?
Swim Mark Club Accreditation is the Swim Englands ‘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. But Swim Mark Club Accreditation is not a badge of honour. It is Swim Englands Club Development model – a planning tool, based on the principles of Long Term Athlete Development, enabling clubs to help athletes, teachers, coaches and administrators to achieve their full potential.
It focuses particularly on the needs of athletes – striving to provide them with the best possible support and environment. Clubs who want to secure Swim Mark Accreditation work steadily towards gaining of a series of outcomes, all of which are seen as essential if the right level of support is to be provided at each stage of an athlete’s development.
