Starfish: The STARFISH Awards are suitable for introducing babies as young as 6 months to swimming. The series is undertaken in shallow water with the guardian in the water holding and supporting the baby. Buoyancy aids may be worn but they are unnecessary as the guardian is holding the baby throughout.
Ducklings: This Award Scheme is primarily designed to introduce very young children and an accompanying adult to the pleasures of being in the water. These Awards have been specifically developed to support the Foundation Level of the National Plan for Teaching Swimming. The duckling badges allow the child to build up confidence in the water with either the help of an adult.
Distance Awards: This comprehensive collection of distance awards ranges from 5 metres through to One mile and allows the child to build up distance and stamina within each of the different strokes.
Water Skills Award 1-6: complements the skills developed in the National Plan for Teaching Swimming, helping to develop watermanship, confidence, versatility, stroke technique skills and endurance.
All badges are accompanied with certificates.
Prices: Laminated £3.00 and unlaminated £2.50
