This allows for us to see how the sport is progressing and also how popular the sport is with people and therefore where the funds should go on the sport. Without measuring the quality and provision of a sport you wont know which direction that the sport is taking this could have a huge impact on the participation in some sports, an example is, if a sport is having a decreases in participation, shows that they need to check the quality of the sport to make sure that is not the reason for it.
The opportunity to gain swim21 accreditation is available to all clubs, across any aquatic discipline including Mastersregardless of size and activity delivered. Swim21 is about creating the best possible swimming experience for all and raising the quality of aquatics provision across all areas.

Club mark is widely recognised by potential funders, schools and other partners that can assist with club growth and development.

I think that by having such a large number of clubs open to the public to join and participate in the participation levels will either remain the same or to steadily increase, which is the main aim of Swim Swim21 club Network— is the second of the three modules to be launched.
The aim is to quality assure clubs who work collaboratively to deliver the athlete pathway in their area, and ensure that athletes meet their potential and are retained in the sport.
It will assist in identifying gaps in provision and opportunities available for clubs to increase and sustain membership. Each club in the network will be valued for their role. It is agreed between accredited clubs to work towards the following objectives: To retain and increase ASA club members To retain and increase volunteers, teachers, coaches and officials To raise the standards of performance across appropriate aquatic disciplines To access swim21 club Network, your club will need to: Swim21 Performance Environment— provides a benchmark for clubs coaching high level athletes across all four disciplines Swimming, Diving, Water polo and Synchronic swimming.

Swim21 Performance will be assessed in three sections: The 3 different modules are the fundamental building blocks to help increase and encourage participation levels. Not only does it allow the participants to improve, it allows the club to improve also. The purpose of each individual module challenges and tests the clubs and their work within increasing participation levels which I think is good as it motivates and drives them to successfully improve internally and externally, for example, internally with the support and guidance and externally for the advertisement and promotion of the club.
This allows the clubs to stay motivated to ensure they receive the support to help their athletes, also this then could benefit the club, through an increase of positive reputation. Becoming well known within a local area will increase the interest and participation level overall.
I think overall that these modules are good and effective for those seeking an increase of participation levels. I think that if any improvement needs to be made, is the advertisement and promotion of these opportunities and modules could be higher and more effective for clubs to know more about what can be provided for them to then be provided for the members.
