All swimmers are assessed against the criteria set out in the ASA Aquatic Skills Framework and assessments are carried out on a monthly basis. Once they have passed the assessment it means they have acquired the skills they need to move to the next level. We are working to the updated framework which involves around developing core aquatic skills, with levels 8, 9 and 10 being specific to the discipline – for us this is Competitive Swimming.
Children have the chance to gain awards in swimming these are categorised as follows:
Level 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and Competitive Start.
