Brechin Beavers Swimming Club has been in existence since 1976 and is one of the oldest established swimming clubs in Angus. We achieved SwimMark accreditation in 2016 and are now working towards SwimMark2. We are a friendly competitive club that is growing quickly under the leadership of our Head Coaches.
The Club is run on a totally voluntary basis and relies on the time generously offered by volunteers. We are a teaching /competitive club and participate in a range of competitions, from friendly local galas to Midlands League.
Our coaches and committee members (and helpers over 16 years) are members of the PVG Scheme and our coaches are qualified to Level 1 and Level 2. The Club is fully insured for swim training activities.
Our aim is to achieve the best for our swimmers, help them build on their confidence and capabilities. They will eventually represent the club at competitions, which is certainly an honour!
We believe children should be rewarded for their efforts and host various social events for their enjoyment, such as trips to Christmas pantomimes and we also hold an annual awards ceremony, which the children enjoy.
Safety and Quality Assurance
The safety and welfare of the children who join the club is paramount. To ensure the highest standards are met, we comply with governing bodies recommendations regarding governance of our club.We can demonstrate this by our accreditation of the SwiMark standard which includes policies on child protection and codes of conduct for teachers and swimmers and for those parents and other members of the club viewing our sessions or competitions.All lead coaches are SASA licensed and qualified at level 1 or above.
We are proud to have been awarded SwiMark, Scottish Swimming’s quality aquatic development programme for clubs. As a swimming club, we aim to:
- Develop safe, effective and child friendly environments, based on good practice
- Improve swimmers, teachers, coaches and volunteers
- Encourage lifelong participation through sustainable swimming development pathways
Swimming is a life skill and to quote Scottish Swimming “Swimming is the sport for all – the sport for life. Scottish Swimming’s vision to ensure that Everyone Can Swim. Learning to swim at an early age sets a positive foundation towards a lifetime of participation and enjoyment in a variety of water sports and aquatic activities”.
Why not give us a try.
