Wavepower – the ASA child safeguarding policy and procedures

Wavepower 2016/19 is the Swim England Child Safeguarding Policy and Procedures manual and replaces all previous ASA Child Safeguarding Policy and Procedures documents.

All Swim England affiliated clubs should adopt and implement Wavepower 2016/19./The theme of Wavepower 2016/19 is to safeguard children and young people in line with current legislation and guidance. 

The responsibility to safeguard children in our clubs and related activities lies will all those involved in the sport and is not the sole responsibility of any one person at club, county or national level. 

Safeguarding children should become an integral part of all club activities and create a culture that provides a safe, happy and fun environment in which children can learn to swim and develop to a level appropriate for their ability.
