Welcome to the regional site for swimming, synchronised swimming, open water swimming, diving and waterpolo in the south west of England. Our organisation is affiliated to the Amateur Swimming Association.

The Board is committed to ensuring opportunities that swimmers currently have can continue, whilst working to ensure we are providing the best opportunities for all, and forge working relationships with potential partners for the future.

Regional committees

It is crucial for the future of our sport that we have a Management Board who can lead the Region forward. The role of the Board is:

  • Strategic direction
  • Governance
  • Financial Management
  • Addressing Talent, Health, Education and driving forward their development
  • Business development

We need you!

Do you know of people out there within our clubs and Counties who have skills to offer? Please come forward now. We need you to help us develop a successful future for our sport.

The development of disciplines will be the responsibility of the committee within the strategic direction identified by the Board. Therefore, it is equally as important that County representatives on discipline committees can contribute to the strategic development of the sport.

Nominations are needed for:

  1. Water Polo Committee
  2. Synchronised Swimming Committee
  3. Diving Committee
  4. Swimming Committee
  5. Open Water Committee
  6. Regional Management Board

Regional Director, Alison Usher and Development Officer, Beth Mayman together with the Board are working to produce a Swimming Plan for the South West. This strategic plan will be a vision for swimming over the next 5 years. This strategy will be inclusive and recognise that there are many providers and participants involved in our sport and we need a strategy that addresses all. The end result will be a strategic document that our partners can buy into and will hit targets for health, education, lifelong participation and success.

For this plan to be effective and mean something to you, we are working to ensure that your issues and priorities are included and addressed within the plan. Days have been held within every County to explain what is happening, answer any questions and find out what is needed.

As plans and structures are approved and appointments made, the latest news will be posted on www.swimwest.org. Please stay in touch and enjoy your visit to our new website.
