Wavepower 2016-19: The ASA Swimmer Safeguarding Policy and Procedures

Wavepower 2016–19 is the latest Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) Swimmer Safeguarding Policies and Procedures publication which replaces all previous versions.

It has been produced to assist in safeguarding and protecting swimmers in our sport and must be adopted by all ASA affiliated clubs and organisations.

Ensuring that swimmers are safeguarded should be a key part of how our clubs and swim clubs operate and helps to provide a safe, happy and fun environment in which swimmers can learn to swim and develop their skills.

The responsibility to safeguard swimmers does not belong to any one person, but instead belongs to everyone who plays a part in delivering our sporting activities. Wavepower is intended for anyone involved in these activities and offers practical guidance and information on mandatory requirements and good practice.

This publication will be fully updated in 2020, but if any new guidance or policy changes are released prior to this, then pages will be updated or added to this section of the website.
