Is your child missing a swimming award?

All children receive one swimming award per term. As they are always awarded the highest stage they have achieved this can result in missing awards. These additional awards can be purchased for £3.50.

We also sell Swim England award files to keep your awards safe for the future.

If you are missing awards and would like purchase awards or a file please contact us.
