1 Swim Ireland Masters Development Plan Ratified and adopted by the Board of Swim Ireland on 11 th December 2010

2 Aim To create a vibrant environment which facilitates adult swimmers in achieving their personal fulfilment and long-lasting health, through Masters participation initiatives, Master club development, recognition of achievements and Masters coach education. Introduction The second annual report of the Irish Sports Monitor stated that swimming is the most popular form of physical activity among adults aged 16 and over. Swimming also remains the sporting activity of choice for the over 50s, followed by golf and keep fit / aerobics. There are many reasons for this including: The growing ease of access to swimming pools Swimming is a non impact activity and is easy on the joints It is largely an indoors activity that can be done all year round. Swimming is a cradle to grave sport catering for all ages. While the term adult swimmer can be used to denote a person aged 18 and over who swims at some level, Masters swimming (as defined by FINA) is the term given to the specific training and competition structures open to swimmers aged 25 years and older who are registered with a swimming club. However one of the objectives of this Development Plan is to encourage 19 year olds and older to join masters clubs and partake in competitions. The 2007 CSO survey estimated that only 3.9% of adult swimmers are competitive, i.e. a Masters swimmer, which shows the potential growth in the number of Masters swimmers by educating and informing leisure swimmers about Masters swimming. The number of Masters swimming clubs registering with Swim Ireland is increasing steadily since 1995 with approximately 17 Masters clubs registered in Ireland in 2010, and 22 clubs who have a masters programme within them. There are currently about 1020 Masters swimmers registered with Swim Ireland. The purpose of this strategic plan is to provide a structure and focus for the development of adult swimming, including Masters swimming, in Ireland and to drive Masters swimming towards reaching its full potential. This strategic plan is aimed at attracting more adult swimmers into Masters swimming as well as providing a structure for senior swimmers who wish to keep competing as they get older.

3 Goals : The development plan is divided into six strategic goals, each with their individual tactical plans, timeframe and cost estimate. The six strategic goals are: 1. Education and Coaching: to put in place a framework for developing Masters coaching 2. Participation: to increase participation in Masters swimming 3. Achievements: to recognise the achievements of Masters swimming and swimmers in a range of categories including High Performance, general participation and volunteerism 4. Competitions: to improve the structure and organisation of Masters swimming competitions 5. Masters Development swim squad: to create a squad system and network that will enable High PerformanceMasters swimmers to develop and maximise their potential. 6. Communication: to develop and enhance methods of communication among Swim Ireland, Swim Ireland Masters committee, clubs and individual adult swimmers. Each of these goals are developed on the following pages. This plan has been approved by the SI Board and will be supported by and implemented through the SI Masters Committee & SI staff working in partnership with the Masters committee.

10 Development Plan Summary Masters swimming is a relatively new sector in the field of aquatic sport and the fastest growing population in the sport. There are a growing number of organised galas that need support. This level of competition has led to a quantum leap in the standard of the sport over a very short time period with records, in both long and short course events, falling at regular intervals. At this stage there are a significant number of swims by Irish Masters swimmers listed in the FINA and LEN rankings. This development plan sets out the strategic issued that need to be addressed to enable the sport to grow in a sustainable way. The goals of this plan for the period are: To put in place a framework for developing Masters coaching To provide a framework that encourages senior swimmers to continue to compete at Masters level To attract additional adult swimmers to Masters swimming To recognise the achievement of Masters swimmers, coaches and volunteers To improve the structure and organisation of Masters swimming competition To provide a framework that helps the High Performance Masters swimmers to develop and maximise their potential To develop and enhance methods of communication for Masters swimming The tactical plans that are attached to the goals will be reviewed and updated on an annual basis. On the basis of this review a budget application for implementation will be made to Swim Ireland in October of each year. Annually, to enable the goals to be attained and to ensure continuity, the outgoing committee will ensure that the incoming committee is fully briefed on all aspects of the plan and on what is required to keep the plan moving forward. This plan has been developed in consultation with Swim Ireland officers and this consultation and cooperation will have to be continued and built upon to ensure that the goals through the tactical plans will be implemented and delivered. By optimising and harnessing the qualities and experience of the SI staff and organisation the quality and standards of Masters swimming in Ireland can only improve with the numbers of participants increasing along with the number of internationally ranked swims.
