ASA Masters Satisfaction Survey

You can help shape the future of Masters swimming in England by filling in the ASA Masters Satisfaction Survey 2016.

The ASA has a mission: Creating a happier, healthier and more successful nation through swimming. The survey will tell us about your current experience of being a Masters swimmer. This will allow us to improve the support and events that we deliver, and make swimming even better for our current members.
You don’t have to be a member of the ASA to share your feedback and complete the survey. We want the views of anyone who trains and/or competes in swimming, aged 18 and over.
