Louth Swimming Club has opened up opportunities for swimmers with disabilities after being officially recognised by the Amateur Swimmign Association (ASA).
Club members passed an assessment to become an ASA Disability Hub Club after help and training from ASA Para-Swimming pathway officer Chris Armstrong.
Hub clubs are local swimming clubs which work in partnership with the ASA to provide assessment opportunities for any swimmer with a disability.
They are invited to attend a training session and asked to complete basic swim skills and tasks to determine their ability level.
After the initial assessment, they will be directed to swimming provision best suited to them, to ensure they have the best chance of reaching their full potential.
This could include local authority or private learn to swim schemes, local swimming clubs, and even up to regional squads and teams.
