Swim England's Learn to Swim Programme has been adopted by a Lithuanian swimming club – marking the project's international entry.

Plaukimo Klubas Banga contacted Swim England in June 2019 with the view to implementing the framework.

Following consultations, the programme was introduced at the club in November 2019.

All of the programme's Swim Awards have now been translated into Lithuanian and Banga has presented their first Stage Awards to their swimmers.

The team at Banga is also receiving ongoing training and reviews from the Swim England Learn to Swim Team.

According to Sigita Špokienė, general manager at Banga, the introduction of the programme has already brought ‘added value’ to the club.

"Our swim school has been in business for three years," she said. "However, we do not have a unified swimming training system, so we are very pleased to have the opportunity to partner with Swim England.

"We are grateful for the training provided. It was useful, hard-working and full of good energy training for our coaches.

"We are pleased to have added value to our customers and employees."
