Badges Information

To find out more about badges please download the ASA National Plan for Teaching Swimming - Journey through Aquatics.

The Swimmer’s ‘journey through aquatics’ starts with Foundation, a programme for developing early years water confidence, which is encouraged through sessions such as ‘parent and baby’ and ‘pre-school’ sessions. The emphasis is upon development of very basic motor skills and introduction to water and the swimming environment through fun and games. The ASA Duckling Awards provide rewards appropriate for this section.

The next stage along the journey takes a Swimmer through Fundamental Movement Skills; Stage 1 to 7 of the National Plan for Teaching Swimming. These are smaller stepping-stones for Swimmers who are not yet ready for Stage 1 of the NPTS and who may have ADDITIONAL NEEDS requirements in order to progress into Stage 1 of the NPTS. The Awards range specific to this section is the ‘ASA Alpha Awards’.


Assessments for new swimmers with the BSSA take place every Sunday starting at 12.30pm and 12.45pm. Places are limited so please call 01527 572129 to book.
