About us

Swim England East Region is one of the 8 regions of Swim England, the national governing body for swimming (and associated disciplines) and was established when the Amateur Swimming Association recognised its regional structure. Swim England East Region was previously known as ASA East Region that included areas of the Southern Counties ASA (SCASA).

The Region is made up of the clubs and associations with headquarters in each of our six affiliated counties organisations:  

Bedfordshire County ASA

Cambridgeshire ASA

Essex County ASA

Swim England Hertfordshire

Norfolk County ASA

Suffolk County ASA

An elected Management Board leads the regional structure. They are supported by a team of development officers who are collectively responsible for supporting clubs and volunteers across the Region and delivering national initiatives locally for all the aquatic disciplines provided in the Region:

  • Swimming
  • Disability Swimming
  • Diving
  • Masters
  • Open Water
  • Synchronised Swimming
  • Water Polo

Each discipline is supported by its own committee with Terms of Reference to deliver agreed development opportunities, competitions and budgets that will enhance the sport.
