As announced by STA (Swimming Teachers’ Association), Konfidence is the proud headline sponsor of the charity’s first-ever Aquatic Excellence Awards, which have been created to celebrate and showcase the achievements of all those involved in delivering learn to swim programmes and aquatics training over the last 12 months.
STA has created 11 STAr awards which are open to all UK and international learn to swim / training providers who work in the stated awards criterion, and the presentation evening will take place during an informal ceremony on Friday 13th October at STA’s national conference in Leicester.
Andrew Regan, Konfidence’s founder said: “We are truly honoured to be the official sponsors of STA’s first Aquatic Excellence Awards. As a team we are proud of our long-standing partnership with STA in support of their charity objectives and the services we provide to help their members and swim school partners – sponsoring the awards is a natural extension of this and we are pleased to be involved in helping to celebrate all the finalists and winner’s achievements. With this also being our 25th anniversary year, we look forward to double celebrations at STA’s conference this year.”
Dave Candler, STA’s CEO, said: “As a national governing body for swimming, we’ve been wanting to create our own awards for some time now, and we believe after all the industry has been through over the last few years, now is the right time to recognise and celebrate the STAr achievements of all those involved in delivering learn to swim and training programmes.
It’s great to have our long-standing partner Konfidence on board as the headline sponsor for our inaugural aquatic excellence awards; we have worked with the team a long time, and we look forward to showcasing all that is great about our industry alongside them and with our aquatic peers at this year’s national conference.”
