Changes to poolside accreditation policy for 2018

Coaches, team managers and chaperones need to ensure their Safeguarding qualification has been recorded by the Swim England Membership team in order for them to get poolside accreditation in 2018.
As of 1 January, if Swim England Membership team do not have proof of qualifications, support staff will not be able to apply for a poolside accreditation at Swim England national events. You can find out more about Safeguarding and Protecting Children courses, and how to submit proof on the Swim England website.
The IoS will be holding a Safeguarding and Protecting Children course during the Swim England National Winter Championships on Wednesday 13 December. The workshop will take place from 12:30-3:30pm in the Skyline Bar at Ponds Forge.
