Bedfordshire ASA County Pathway working in line with ASA England Programmes

A Pathway Guidance Document for ASA County Swimming Associations for 2017-2021

Programmes Termed ‘1 Direction’

On October 19th 2016, the ASA England Programmes team hosted the first County Pathway Forum in Loughborough. The purpose was to outline our vision for the 2017 – 2021 funding cycle to both the ASA County and Regional Swimming Associations.

England Programmes Team highlighted the need for a clearly defined, aligned and cohesive pathway within swimming. It was acknowledged that the ASA England Programmes team did not have the capacity to create, manage and deliver this pathway without the collaborative support of our County and Regional Swimming Associations.

After having discussed several key initiatives within the County forum, the England Programmes Team have now produced this detailed strategy document ‘1 Direction’. This Document will provide guidance and support for each of the County Swimming Associations who have committed to embarking upon this pathway, for which Bedfordshire ASA has done so.  (Nov 2016)
