The ASA changed its name to Swim England from 3rd April.
Swim England is the national governing body for swimming in England. It helps people learn how
to swim, enjoy the water safely, and compete in all its sports.
Swim England’s vision is of a nation swimming and it strives to inspire everyone to enjoy the
water in the way that suits them. Swim England works with partners to create engaging
programmes that enable everyone to be active, have fun and stay healthy through swimming.
Each month millions of people are able to enjoy swimming, diving, water polo and synchronised
swimming because they have been through Swim England’s renowned Learn to Swim
Programme. Swim England is committed to helping people stay safe in the water and works to
ensure water safety is kept high on the national agenda.
At its heart, Swim England is a membership organisation dedicated to supporting its clubs and
members to develop and succeed. It also maintains the laws of the sport and runs world-class
national events that are open to all.
Swim England also operates a comprehensive range of qualification and education programmes
for teachers, coaches, officials and tutors. For more information visit swimming.org/swimengland.
