Welcome to swim21 – the ASA’s quality mark for Clubs!

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 provides 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.  Please click here for more information on how to obtain your Clubmark ID number.

In the South East Region we have a dedicated team able to help you and your club achieve swim21 accreditation as well as helping you make the most of the benefits and outcomes of swim21 status.
