Elgin ASC achieve SwiMark accreditation - Well Done everyone!

Congratulations to Elgin ASC who were presented with their SwiMark accreditation certificate last week and helping us achieve 'Stronger, Sustainable Clubs'. A huge well done to everyone, especially their past Chair, Erica Morton and committee for the hard work they all put in to achieve this recognised level!  

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
