ASA membership information

ASA Cat 1 membership


This is for individuals who are part of a club and are learning to swim or are swimming at any level within the club network.

It is not for people who compete in open competition in any sport, unless the event has an exemption under Swim England Law or is designated as Low Level Competition (Download the definition here).

ASA Cat 2 membership


Category two membership is our biggest category as it is for people who want to compete and be part of a structured competitive pathway. It is for your club members who want to compete in competitions not exempted under Swim England law, or designated as a Low Level Competition
(Download the definition here).

ASA Cat 3 membership


Category three membership is for anyone involved in a club who isn’t covered by categories one and two, such as volunteers, coaches and teachers. You can find more detail about category three on the Swim England membership website here.
