What's the purpose of the awards?
How does it all work?
When swimmers first join the club they start working on the Club Awards straight away. With the awards forming the foundation of the curriculum for the majority of the 1st session training group. In order to move up lanes and start competing in gala's it is necessary for swimmers to pass certain level before they can move up lanes.
Lane 1 (1st Session)
In this lane swimmers work on achieving their level's 1 and 2 for the club awards scheme. These levels introduce swimmers to the basic skills required in order to be able to compete in competitive galas.
Lane 2 (1st Session)
In this lane swimmers work on achieving their level's 3 and 4 for the club awards scheme and their preliminary competitive start award.
