24th January 2019 – words from Eric Gillespie our Club President:
It is with great pleasure that following a full review of the club by the East Regional Development Manager for Scottish Swimming, I can inform you that Step Rock ASC has been awarded SwiMark Accreditation!
What this means is that Scottish Swimming recognises what the club is doing to increase participation in the sport, the sporting opportunities it is providing children in the local community and the work that the club is doing to improve its swimmers. The standard of coaching and the dedication of our coaches and volunteers was highly commended. The club has also been recognised for providing and developing a safe, effective and child friendly environment.
The award proves that our club is delivering a high standard on all fronts and everyone connected with the club should be congratulated especially as all the work is being delivered on a voluntary basis.
As well as our certificate, the club will receive a £150 education voucher which can be used on any UKCC course or Scottish Swimming CPD.
