Develop Your Club

Scottish Swimming recognises the important role clubs can play to increase participation and improve the quality of sporting opportunities for the benefit of the local community. There are many ways to develop your club.

SwiMark/SwiMark Plus, DiveMark/DiveMark Plus, PoloMark/PoloMark Plus and SynchroMark/ SynchroMark Plus are Scottish Swimming’s quality aquatic development programmes for clubs.  The aim of accreditation is to provide a nationally recognised standard that will enable clubs to:

  • Develop safe, effective and child friendly environments, based on good practice
  • Improve participants experience through well trained teachers and volunteers
  • Encourage lifelong participation through sustainable development pathways

The accreditation process is straightforward with guidance and support resources being made available throughout from your Regional Swimming Development Manager and Scottish Swimming. Find out more about the accreditation scheme.

We also have a new marketing toolkit available from 2017 to support your club with promotion to help you recruit and retain members and raise the profile of your club.
