What we do

Swim England East Region comprises of the counties of Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex (excluding those areas of Essex that are London Boroughs), Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk. We are one of eight regions in England.

Regions form the middle tier of national, regional and county swimming governance, each with their own specific areas of responsibility.

The East Region is managed at a strategic level by a Management Board, with the day to day responsibility for the aquatic disciplines lying with its volunteer managers and committees.

The Region focuses on the specific needs of clubs, ensuring that our practices and policies keep up to date with the needs of clubs across all aquatic disciplines. We communicate with our clubs and members via our website, newsletters and social media and endeavour to ensure that they have all relevant information and news.

We work in partnership with Swim England to ensure that we have compatible strategies and development plans. We also work closely with our county associations, who have representatives on the Swim England East Region Management Board, and its committees.

Development is a key priority for the Region. The Region employs a small team of Development Officers to ensure that our clubs, athletes, coaches and volunteers are able to access the support, training and education they need to reach their full potential. We are confident that by investing in development, swimming in the East Region will continue to improve, and that we will see more of our athletes succeeding on the national and international stage.

The Region also strives to provide a high standard of regional competitions for athletes from all disciplines. We see regional competition as the stepping stone towards competing at a national and international level, and are committed to providing competitions that prepare athletes for progression to the next level.
