18,000 Members. Hundreds of events. 1 deep breath and dive in. Me and the water.

We are committed to enhancing the lives of our members by working with our clubs to provide the framework for ever improving standards, governance and accessibility.

Our Swim Ireland Club Support Officers and Regional Pathway Coaches are based in the region to provide a direct line into Swim Ireland and to offer on the ground real time support to our clubs and regions.

Clubmark aims to introduce uniformly high standards of governance across all clubs. We've introducing more ways to become a member also to suit different audiences. Examples of such include special membership with our partners in Triathlon Ireland which allows access to open water and masters events and associate membership which allows teachers and coaches not affiliated to a specific club to avail of the insurance cover.
