The Swimming Teachers’ Association (STA) has launched its first ever Aquatic Excellence Awards, to celebrate and showcase the achievements of learn to swim programmes and aquatics training in the UK and globally.
The 11 “STAr” award categories are open to all UK and international learn to swim and aquatic training providers and range from Star swimming teacher and swim school provider to not for profit community campaign.
Dave Candler, STA CEO, said: “We’ve been wanting to create our own awards for some time now, and we believe after all the industry has been through over the last few years, now is the right time to recognise and celebrate the STAr achievements of all those involved in delivering learn to swim and training programmes.
“We’re really looking forward to seeing a diverse range of entries that highlight all the excellent work you do in grassroots swimming in helping participants of all ages and abilities learn a key life skill – here in the UK and internationally.
“We are looking for examples of creativity, diversity, community, and excellence, in line with our charity objectives.”
Entries are now open and the winners will be announced during a presentation evening at the STA annual conference on Friday 13th October.
