Tadcaster Squad Gains Quality Award Marks


Tadcaster Swim Squad is now officially a Swim Mark Essential Club and has also been awarded the Sport England Clubmark.

Formerly called swim21, SwimMark accreditation is Swim England’s quality standard for clubs.  It recognises high standards of governance, sustainability and effectiveness and has been awarded for a two year period following a full review of Tadcaster Swim Squad.




Clubmark stands for higher standards of safety, fairness, coaching and management. That way the nation’s sports club infrastructure is safer, stronger and more successful.

This means that a club that has been awarded Clubmark has achieved minimum operating standards in safeguarding and protecting children, quality coaching, equal opportunities and good management.

In essence, a club that qualifies for Clubmark is a well-run club which is ACTIVE and ACCESSIBLE, getting the best out of young people and giving everyone a sporting chance.

Both of these accreditations reflect a great deal of hard work by the Committee and in particular by the Club Secretary, Eleanor Carswell.
