One of the county’s longest running swimming clubs, Whitburn based Trojan ASC have recently being awarded Scottish Swimming’s Aquamark Level 1 accreditation.

Club Secretary, Colin Matthews, said: “The accreditation is awarded by the sport’s governing body, Scottish Swimming, to ensure clubs are strong, sustainable, and inclusive to help grow the sport. The main aims of the Aquamark accreditation are to provide a nationally recognised standard that will enable clubs to: 

  • Be inclusive, adhere to equality standards and engage with the local community.
  • Develop safe, effective, well governed, welcoming, and friendly environments, based on good practice.
  • Improve the club experience for all members by having an agreed vision and culture.
  • Strive to be a long-term sustainable club focused on developing pathways for all.

Colin added:” This is a great achievement for our club and demonstrates to both existing and future members that we are a sustainable, well governed club operating to the highest of standards.”
