We all want our kids to excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It helps them develop strength of body and mind.

Here are some school swimming competitions and challenges to help you develop your pupils. 

Aquasplash Festival

Primary school aged pupils should be able to enjoy and experience the highs and lows of aquatic competition. So organise your very own Aquasplash festival for your school.

Aquasplash is designed to allow all young people to take part in aquatic competition.

The festival is designed to be fully inclusive and there are options to increase or decrease the difficulty of events.
