Welcome to the online application form

Swim England TRY Funding is available to all Swim England affiliated discipline clubs/sections; Open Water, Synchronised Swimming and Water Polo. The key focus is on growing club membership using existing pool space or by expanding pool time to offer new aquatic activity.

Successful projects will aim to link with local operators, community groups, swim schools and swimming clubs to create a pathway into the relevant discipline club/section.

If  your club is applying for this funding and is not currently SwimMark accredited, there will be an expectation to achieve SwimMark within 12 months of the funding award. This is to demonstrate that the club has a sustainable model and effective processes in place.

The investment can be spent on the following areas:
