Swim 21 is a planning tool, based on the principles of Long Term Athlete Development, enabling clubs to help athletes, teachers, coaches, and administrators to achieve their full potential. It focuses particularly on the needs of athletes - striving to provide them with the best possible support and environment. Swim 21 Accreditation recognises the clubs that are committed to providing safe, effective and quality services for the benefit of their members both nationally and regionally. Clubs work steadily towards the attainment of a series of outcomes all of which are seen as essential if the right level of support is to be provided at each stage of an athlete's development. Swim 21 Accreditation is available to ASA clubs of all aquatic disciplines that are positioned at one or more of the four levels. They are:

  • Teaching
  • Skill Development
  • Competitive Development
  • Performance
Crediton & District Swimming Club initially achieved Swimming accreditation for Skill Development and Foundation (Masters) in 2008 and has maintained its accreditation at yearly reviews of our development plan.
