Swimming now has a network of Disability Hub Clubs. Hub Clubs are mainstream swimming clubs that have been identified by the ASA, and have a responsibility to engage with swimmers with a disability, offer an assessment for new swimmers, and signpost swimmers into further swimming provision which is appropriate for the individual swimmer. Details of all the Hub Clubs across the Country can be found here.
There is also a very useful Talent ID Toolkit. The Toolkit has been developed using a combination of the resources used at Playground to Podium and Talent ID events. This is used by all hub clubs, and provides a standardised method to assessing swimmers with a disability for Talent. This would be great for any club, coach, teacher and lesson provider. The Talent ID Toolkit is now available online click here
In addition there is FREE Online CPD 'An Introduction to Disability Swimming' which provides teachers / coaches and volunteers with a brief insight into Disability Swimming. For more information click here
