Swimline Thumb

The Amateur Swimming Association is committed to promoting the welfare of children in our sport. That is why they have joined with the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children to create SwimLine. The service is provided for anyone involved in swimming, including children and young people who believe that the welfare of a young child is at risk. This could be neglect or abuse, bullying or fear of someone, or anything that is worrying you and you don't know who to discuss it with.

Alternately swimmers and adults may contact our Club Welfare Officer with any concerns, in confidence by e-mail at: welfare@gysc.org.uk.

Childpower_logoBritish Swimming also have a section of their website specifically for young swimmers - here's what they say about it:

"This is your website and the place where you as a young swimmer can make your voice heard. You can talk about anything that matters to you from the support you get from your coach, who you talk to when you're upset, and who helps you when swimming gets challenging or difficult."
