Monnow awarded Dragon Mark

Monnow Swimming Club has been awarded Swim Wales’s recognition of quality, the Dragon Mark. This is national recognition that Monnow is providing safe, effective and quality services to all its members


Dragon Mark Club Accreditation is Swim Wales’s Club Development model, a planning tool, based on the principles of Long Term Athlete Development, enabling clubs to help swimmers, teachers, coaches and committees to achieve their full potential. It focuses particularly on the needs of the swimmers, striving to provide them with the best possible support and environment. The benefits of becoming a Dragon Mark Accredited Club are mainly seen through the process itself. The programme enhances club management, strengthens the structures and unites the club with a philosophy and programmes that ensure the best environment is available for our swimmers. The award is not just a badge of honour but is a development tool that allows the club to continually improve.
