European Aquatics has launched a new accreditation process for Member Federations who wish to have centres for Sport Science, Evaluation, Training Camps and High-Performance officially endorsed by LEN.
The ambition of this project will be to help create a one-stop shop resource network – and ‘LEN Innovation Hub’ – which will help further progress the development of aquatic sports, from grassroots to high performance, across the continent.
These new measures, follow LEN President Antonio Silva’s election manifesto, specifically Pillar 2 – ‘Our Sport: Making it Accessible for All’.
LEN believes that by establishing a considered list of endorsed facilities it can ensure Member Federations, coaches, officials and technical staff have the resources and tools to develop, as well as engage, not only the current, but also the next generation of athletes.
Approved venues and facilities, who serve any of the aquatic disciplines of artistic swimming, diving, swimming and water polo, shall receive an official LEN accreditation badge and permission to use the official endorsement across their social media channels.
Should you believe that your centre or lab is capable of providing elite-level services (such as biomechanical analysis, physiology testing or as described above), then please apply either directly via firstname.lastname@example.org or via your national aquatics federation.
For more details about the application process and key forms / details which are required, please follow the attachments and links below.
