SwimMark Club Accreditation is the ASA’s ‘quality mark’. It recognizes nationally and regionally the clubs that are committed to providing safe, effective and quality services for the benefit of their members. 

However, SwimMark Club Accreditation is not a badge of honour. It is the ASA’s 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 SwimMark 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.

Dave Stewart, SwimMark Co-ordinator for DASC

DASC is pleased to announce that in December 2018 we have been awarded SwimMark Essential by Swim England’s Club Management Group. The accreditation lasts for 2 years.
