Using the new Swim England brand name
Swim England has provided the following clarification of when we use the Swim England brand name and when we use the Amateur Swimming Association name. Swim England is our brand name. It is how we refer to and talk about ourselves in all internal and external communications. Adopting a brand name is similar to adopting a ‘trade name’. It means we can use a meaningful, customer focussed name that clearly says what we do. Our constitutional name is unaffected – and remains the Amateur Swimming Association. We will still need to use the Amateur Swimming Association name in certain circumstances, such as for legal or constitutional documents, when we refer to our Laws and Regulations or when we refer to our historical achievements.

COACHES FORUM – WHO ARE WE AND WHAT DO WE DO?
