Amateur Swimming Association
The Amateur Swimming Association is the English national governing body for swimming, diving, water polo, open water and synchronised swimming.

The ASA aims to ensure everybody has an opportunity to learn to swim.
ASA Eastern Region
With effect from 1st October 2005, eight new ASA Regions replaced the 5 previous ASA Districts. Those new regions are:
Harlow Penguins were previously in Southern Counties. Now we are in Eastern Region.
Why change? The future source of funding for the sport of swimming will come from Regional and County Sports Partnerships established by Sport England and so by reviewing the existing boundaries in this way, the structure of the sport can move into alignment with the Sport England Regions. This will enable the new Regions to maximise benefits through funding and assume a stronger role, not only in the direct development of swimming, including education, health and fitness but in other areas such as in provision of facilities (new pools etc) and their operation.
Who else belongs to Eastern Region? Essex, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Norfolk, Suffolk.
Please read the publication "Competition for all" for an explanation of competition rules and the different levels at which you can compete.
