The ASA have changed their name…
Our governing body, the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) has changed its name to Swim England. Swim England have re-vamped their website and refreshed the Learn to Swim programme that we deliver.
From September 2017, you’ll see that the outcomes for our swim stages have changed.
Swimcentral will continue to teach this proven swimming syllabus which is now known as the Swim England Learn to Swim Programme
