I CAN Awards

All Awards

Swim England I CAN Awards are perfect for babies, toddlers and pre-school aged children.

They recognise achievement of specific single successes for early learners, and can be awarded at any time by your child’s swimming teacher.

The I CAN Awards are a brilliant way to motivate those who might be ‘stuck’ at a particular level of learning.

They’re also great for rewarding learners with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).

Your child will enjoy receiving a badge and certificate for nine types of skill development.

The Awards are, I CAN…

  • …enter the water safely
  • …jump in
  • …float on my front
  • …float on my back
  • …roll over
  • …blow bubbles
  • …swim
  • …enter, turn, return
  • …exit safely
