Swim England affiliated clubs now have access to a set of club awards for each sport. These have been designed to reward and motivate members, as well as helping to provide an income for your club. The awards consist of a certificate and pin badge for each level of achievement.
The Awards can be used to:
- Help new club members transition from the familiar Learn to Swim Awards.
- Recognise, reward and motivate athletes’ progress and achievements.
- Provide a clear, progressive pathway.
- Develop and consolidate correct technique.
The Awards will support your coaches and your club to:
- Provide a clear and consistent structure for club training sessions.
- Generate an extra income stream for your club.
There is also a discount opportunity for all Swim Mark accredited clubs to gain an extra 5% off the cost of badges.
Swim England ran a pilot with various size clubs last year and during the programme took feedback prior to launching. One coach whose club was part of the pilot commented “There was an immediate noticeable improvement in the skill level of the participants.”
We have also put together a powerpoint presentation giving further support and guidance which can be downloaded here.
