Swim England Rainbow Distance Awards
The Swim England Rainbow Distance Awards run alongside our stages 1-7.
The Swim England Rainbow Stroke Awards covers distances of between 5 and 100 metres, and complement Stages 1-7 of the Swim England Learn to Swim Framework.
The Swim England Rainbow Distance Awards are designed to complement the 10 different stages of the Swim England Learn to Swim Programme.
They are a range of bright, cheerful badges and certificates to help keep your child motivated while working through the individual Learn to Swim stages.
The Rainbow Distance Awards are aimed at swimmers of five years and older and are designed to demonstrate the pupils’ ability to swim from A to B without pause and without stress.
They are a great way to give swimmers the incentive to develop their swimming abilities and stamina by gradually increasing the distance they can swim.
Pupils may touch the side and end of the pool (but not the bottom) in order to turn.
These Awards are designed to test the child’s ability to swim the following distances:
5m, 10m, 15m, 20m, 25m, 50m, 100m, 200m, 400m, 600m, 800m, 1,000m, 1,500m, 1 mile, 2,000m, 3,000m, 4,000m and 5,000m.
