UK Sport and Sport England outline increased safeguarding and welfare plans for all sports

News item 16 Jan 2023: The two largest sporting bodies responsible for funding elite and grassroots sport in the UK outlined plans to strengthen safeguarding and welfare across all sports. The move by UK Sport and Sport England is in response to the shocking findings of the Whyte Review, which was published last June. It revealed the often sickening lengths at which young gymnasts were being bullied, starved, and physically and mentally abused by those entrusted with their safety and welfare, their coaches. The Whyte Review suggests over 3,500 complaints were made to British Gymnastics between 2008 and 2020. While British Gymnastics is undergoing a long process of reform with oversight from both UK Sport and Sport England, it was acknowledged in the aftermath of the Whyte Review that strengthening safeguarding and welfare should not be confined just to gymnastics, but all sports.

Quantum Leaps in Swimming: An Interview with Hall of Fame Coach Don Swartz

Quantum Leaps in Swimming: An Interview with Hall of Fame Coach Don Swartz

Don Swartz got his start as a club coach in 1967 when he worked with George French at the Ladera Oaks Aquatic Club in Northern California as an age group coach. After living in Davis, California, he moved to Marin County to become the Head Coach of the Marin Aquatic Club. From 1970 to 1976, he coached a number of swimmers who went on to make the Olympic, World Championship, and Pan-American teams. Some of these swimmers set world records. One of his swimmers, Rick DeMont, broke the 4-minute mark in the 400m freestyle race at the World Championships in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, in 1973. He was the first person to do this. The Marin Aquatic Club had a lot of high school All-Americans and usually finished in the top 10 at the AAU National Championships. Don was on the Board of the ASCA and spoke at a number of World Clinics for the ASCA. He was a coach on the teams for the 1975 World Championships and the 1977 dual meets in East Germany and Russia for the national teams. Don started the Creative Performance Institute in 1977. For eight years, it was his main job to teach coaches and athletes about the mental side of sports. In his workshops, he talked about things like setting goals, taking risks, dealing with anxiety, and visualizing. Many high school, club, and college teams were among his clients. He also worked in Canada, Mexico, Venezuela, Sweden, and Ireland. His dedication is best shown by saying, "My goal is to be the best coach I can be by continuing to grow." As a coach, I'm still getting better. Since I no longer coach in a vacuum, every week my skills improve."
