The club has a diverse membership........ Attracting participants from many different
communities within the city and with different needs.
Why do you think that it is important to recognise diversity and to treat all participants and their
parents equally?
To stop different people feel that they have been discriminated against and so that swimmers can
achieve their best performance.
Task seven
All our volunteers work closely as a team. Give two (2) reasons why you think this is
1. So that a greater knowledge of the sport can be shared with other coaches, participants and
2. Together more people can succeed in their sport as more knowledge is shared and
participants can progress in and out of sessions as information maybe given to parents who
may help the swimmer.
Give two (2) examples of how you think teamwork can impact positively on the club:
1. Participants can progress at the highest of their abilities as improved programming and

When you start volunteering for the club we like all our helpers to constantly look to improve their
performance. Give two (2) reasons why you think this is important?
1. To raise the standard of teaching so that participants can learn from an experienced helper
