SWIMMING

Swim Wales

Swim Wales is the National Governing Body for Aquatics in Wales. This covers Swimming (including Para-Swimming), Water Polo, Synchronised Swimming and Diving.

We are continually working to make sure every stage of the aquatic pathway is improving the way it is integrating swimmers with a disability. We view Learn to Swim as equally an important stage as international representation, which means we work with Local Authorities, deliverers and clubs to ensure that there is a clear route for a swimmer to move from LTS to Competition, as well as allowing swimmers to enter at varying stages of that pathway, for example someone that has acquired a disability.

Most of all, we want to ensure that swimmers are seen as SWIMMERS. Regardless of disability, they will have an opportunity to succeed and will be provided with the correct environment that will help them do that and one that will encourage them to improve and reach the highest levels.

We have a National Disability Swimming Manager, who drives our vision for Disability/Para-Swimming forward. If you require any specific information you can contact him on huw.griffiths@welshasa.co.uk

However, you will be to contact various members of staff at Swim Wales, who will be able to provide information on local opportunities, swimming lessons, clubs, coaching courses, volunteering and competitive swimming.
