We will be holding a number of Swim21 Club Development Workshops at Durham County Cricket Club. The workshops are free and are open to all clubs within the North East. The aim of the workshops is to provide support to clubs looking to complete their swim21 accreditation and support those clubs who would like to get their swim21 accreditation but haven't got the time to get it started. There will be two identical workshops throughout the day, one at 10:00 and another at 12:00. During the workshops there will be a number of officers on hand to offer support and guidance on all aspects of swim21 accreditation as well as answer any questions on club development you may have.
