SH2OUT Club Accreditation

Supporting clubs to ensure open water swimming is delivered to approved standards.

Recent years have seen a large growth in open water swimming offered by the commercial sector and clubs. British Triathlon and RLSS UK are recognised for accrediting clubs who train in open water. Until now there hasn’t been one single place for clubs to gain all the information they need to ensure they are offering safe swimming sessions. SH₂OUT is here to support clubs whilst writing their safety operating procedures.

SH2OUT have developed a supportive accreditation process for open water swimming clubs to work through, which will not only provide peace of mind to club committees, participants and parents; but will also provide a valuable promotional tool for their club. This will ensure that all club swimming sessions are delivered to approved SH2OUT standards resulting in an amazing swimming experience for participants.

This accreditation process will also provide a kitemark and safety standard, to provide open water swimmers with the peace of mind that the sessions they are attending are safe and that the club has the appropriate safety procedures in place.
