SwimMark Information Sessions
There have been a number of changes implemented to SwimMark over the last 6 months and we strongly recommend that all clubs attend our one of our SwimMark Information Sessions to familiarise yourself with these changes in preparation for your next renewal. As part of a clubs affiliation to Swim England, as of 1st December 2020 all clubs are required to complete Stronger Affiliation (this is not required if a club already has SwimMark), if your club has not yet achieved SwimMark or Stronger Affiliation then we would encourage you to attend a session to begin the process. These sessions are aimed at SwimMark Coordinators and/or other relevant club personnel.
