Adult Distance Awards

The Adult Distance Awards can be gained by achieving five metres, 10 metres, 25 metres, 50 metres, 100 metres, 200 metres, 800 metres and one mile.

Designed to provide motivational milestones for swimmers who enjoy lane swimming, these Awards offer swimmers a clear target to achieve.

How do I earn Adult Distance Awards?

Awards are issued at the teacher’s discretion as it is hard to assess exact distances of some of the longer swims.

The Distance Awards complement the Adult Learn to Swim Awards.
