Vivify joins forces with Total Swimming Academies to launch The Movement Project

The Movement Project

We are super proud to announce that we have joined forces with Total Swimming Academies (TSA) to launch The Movement Project. Led by Four-Time Olympic Medallist Becky Adlington OBE, this initiative has been designed to address the UK’s inactivity crisis. We’re on a mission to help as many schools as possible by opening their doors, so that more communities have access to facilities to improve their physical and mental wellbeing.

39% of sporting facilities behind school doors

The Movement Project offers the opportunity to maximise revenue across all underutilised areas and schools can even access capital investment. With 39% of sporting facilities existing behind school gates, schools really do have a pivotal role to play in improving the health of the nation. 

Here are a few words from Becky

Together, Vivify and Total Swimming Academies want to unlock the true potential of school swimming pools nationwide, after it was revealed that more than one million children will leave primary school by 2025 unable to swim a length. Sadly, this crisis is set to grow unless help steps in, with current figures suggesting that as many as one in five pools will never fully reopen again because of the pandemic and predominantly due to spiralling maintenance costs.

1 Million Children Will leave primary school by 2025 unable to swim a length.

What does The Movement Project offer?

  • Pool facility investment & management for schools with facilities that require investment into the refurbishment of their facilities.

  • Pool facility management only for schools with swimming pools that do not require investment into the refurbishment of their facilities

  • Dry-side facilities management for schools with dry-side facilities that would like to explore full facility management to maximise revenue.

This partnership will not only generate essential income to keep school pools open, but it will allow them to play a pivotal role in the local community.

Everyone here at Vivify is immensely proud to be working alongside Becky and the whole of Total Swimming Academies to change the lives of children and communities across the nation. We can’t wait to update you on what’s next.
