You might be familiar with Aquasplash already but we're taking it to another level with the Big Splash.

We've picked out 8 of the best Aquasplash activities and given them a points scoring system.

Your kids could be pushing a flying saucer through the pool with their nose or playing footie relay for the Rooneys in your class.

Secondary School

Primary schools may have Aquasplash but we're not leaving secondary schools in the lurch.

Say hello to... Splashdown!

Splashdown is a series of fun competitions aimed at children between 11 and 14 years old who are not involved in regular swimming galas.
