About Yorkshire Swimming Association
The Yorkshire Swimming Association (YSA) is the principal organising and regulatory body for aquatic sport in the County of Yorkshire, North & North East Lincolnshire. The County of Yorkshire together with North and North East Lincolnshire had a population of 5.18 Million at the last census. It is the largest County in the UK by area, and has almost the same population as Scotland (5.22M). If you want to know more about the administrative region of Yorkshire & Humberside click here.
On 18th October 2003 the traditional Yorkshire County area was extended to include the administrative areas of North and North East Lincolnshire, and YSA's remit extended to cover the Aquatic Clubs in those areas. . YSA looks after the interest of swimmers, synchronized swimmers, masters and water polo athletes and organises disability events. All Aquatic Clubs in the geographic area intending to send members to compete must affiliate to YSA in order to do so. Clubs in the county do this by affiliating to the ASA, together with affiliation to North Eastern Region of the ASA (ASA NER) and YSA.
