Swim Mark 2019
Grantham Swimming Club gets its SwimMark accreditation for the next 12 months.
SwimMark is a club development tool managed by Swim England. It is a recognised quality mark throughout sport as it ensures the minimum standard is achieved within clubs enabling them to be effective, ethical and sustainable.
Grantham Swimming Club is also a SwimMark Lincolnshire Club Network member.
The opportunity to gain SwimMark essential accreditation is available to all clubs, across any aquatic discipline (including Masters), regardless of size and activity delivered. SwimMark is about creating the best possible swimming experience for all and raising the quality of aquatics provision across all areas.
SwimMark essential offers national recognition that clubs are providing a quality service for all members, which is recognised by Sport England. All clubs gaining SwimMark essential 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.
To achieve SwimMark essential accreditation, clubs need to submit information for 16 ‘elements’. The elements are reviewed and approved by the Regional Development Officers and then by a regional and national panel. Accreditation lasts for two years, however a health check of the ‘essential’ elements will need to be completed in the interim year.
Thank you to everyone involved in Grantham's submission for this year.
