London UK,  21 March 2022: Accredit Solutions will be supporting the English Schools’ Swimming Association (ESSA) through the provision of their accreditation system for all upcoming swim meets.

The partnership with ESSA follows on from Accredit’s earlier involvement in the sponsorship of little league football in London. Providing a safe and nurturing environment for all children to enjoy sport is central to Accredit’s belief.

The provision of Accredits system will allow the ESSA to ensure access is maintained across the venues during swimming galas. The ESSA team will be able to provide clearly visible accreditation badges for the events.

ESSA introduced the system at the 71st ESSA Inter-Divisional Championships in Coventry. The system allowed them to set colour coded access for each area, ensuring all those attending are accredited and easily identifiable.

Peder Berg, CEO and Founder of Accredit said “We’re involved across multiple sectors of sport across the globe. We’re always looking at ways to give back to the sporting community and when this opportunity came up, to help the swimmers, and potential Olympians, of tomorrow we couldn’t say no.”

Berg continues “it’s important children are able to participate in sport in a safe environment, and that’s exactly what we’ve achieved with this partnership. Children, parents and teachers alike can be safe in the knowledge, security is there to allow everyone to focus on the swimming.”

Stewart Nicklin from ESSA states, “Accredit Solutions has enabled us to bring in an additional level of safeguarding into our national events with ease. Their system is easy to navigate and operate but secures our athletes and puts in checks following our internal procedures. Their passes are robust and high quality, as well as their colour coding allowing quick easy checks by staff in secure areas. Accedit Solutions offer a simple solution in enhancing our safeguarding practises.”

ESSA organises national championships for swimming, water polo, and diving as well as supporting international aquatic athlete pathways by taking teams abroad for competition. In addition, it promotes the teaching of swimming in schools.
