Open Water AwardsNovember 30, 2018
Our Open Water Awards are a fantastic way to improve your swimming ability in open water.
The three awards are designed for any swimmers over the age of eight, and involve dry side and water-based activity.
Some of the skills you will develop through the awards are:
- starting in the water
- starting with a dive
- turning around a buoy
- line drafting
- arrowhead drafting
- close proximity swimming
- feeding stations.
The awards must be delivered by qualified Swim England teachers or coaches, and you can take Awards 1 and 2 in the pool.
Head to our coaching pages for information about delivering the awards.
