Affiliations, Associations and Accreditations

In order for Swim-IT to participate in various galas, obtain necessary insurances and also to use training facilities we are obliged to maintain certain affiliations and accreditations. We also choose to associate with other key organisations.




The Scottish Amateur Swimming Association is the governing body in Scotland.

SASA East District

Not only do we affiliate with SASA directly but SASA also have 4 districts and we affiliate with the East District.

SwiMark Plus

SASA have an accreditation framework that 
enables and encourages clubs to put suitable structures in place to ensure that they are running their club correctly, financially responsibly and have 
swimmers wellfare at heart. This is a 2 tier programme (SwiMark and SwiMark Plus) that allows existing and prospective members to be assured that the club subscribes to all key governing principles. Achieving the SwiMark Plus accredition is an honour that not many clubs achieve and we work hard to maintain this position.

Active West Lothian

Swim-IT have affiliated with Active West Lothian in order to not only make use of various West Lothian swimming pools and other facilities but to ensure that we comply with all requirements of the council and West Lothian Leisure and consequently receive preferential rates of hire. It is also a means of holding clubs accountable for maintaining suitable levels of safety and first aid training. It further gives the club access to primary schools to help with encouraging more children to get involved with swimming.

Scottish Disability Sport

Swim-IT work very closely with SDS and have a number of swimmers within their programme. Our Head Coach also assists with disability coaching at a regional level and a few swimmers have represented Scotland at the British Para Championships.
