The British Sub-Aqua Club (BSAC) have announced the affiliation of the Sub-Aqua Association (SAA) to the National Governing Body (NGB) for Sub Aqua Sport.
In the last 10 years, the SAA and the NGB have been working together in partnership for the benefit of the sport. Recently changes in expectations in England and Wales have a required a more formal recognition of this partnership.
Through this affiliation agreement, SAA members and clubs will be provided with access to national funding, Clubmark recognition and support in the provision and application of policies recognised by the national sporting organisations. In addition SAA members will have free access to Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly CRB) access.
This agreement represents the ongoing spirit of partnership between two organisations responsible for developing our sport in the UK.
