Competitive Start Awards

The Competitive Start Award is a mandatory course for all swimmers wishing to start races from the shallow end of the pool. It teaches safe entry to the water from the diving blocks at the shallow end and until this is successfully completed swimmers will be required to start races in the water.

Shallow diving can cause serious injuries if not done properly and by securing these awards your children will show they have the competence to dive in water 0.9-1.3m deep. This is a standard demanded for competitions under Swim England rules.

Swimming Club Awards

The six progressive Swimming Club Awards help children make the transition from the Learn to Swim Programme to a club level swimmer.

Please visit the link below to view the outcomes for each award.

Swimmers in our Pre-Competitive and Competitive 1 squads will be working towards achieving these outcomes.
