Swim England competitive awards

Swim England has a set of competitive award standards and badges for swimmers to work towards regardless of age. The required times for these awards are in the table below, the table together with a form to claim an award can be downloaded via the links at the bottom of this article.

The awards are split into Sprint (25m, 50m and 100m); Middle Distance (all 200m & 400m freestyle) and Distance (400m IM, 800m and 1500m Freestyle).

You only have to achieve one of the times in one stroke in an award category to qualify for the circular round badges for Sprint, Middle Distance and Distance in Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum but you can then go on to collect the other flashes in that category.  You also only need to get one sprint time, e.g. If you get the time in 25m free, then you get the badge and once you get it in 50m free you don’t get any further badges for the Sprint.

If you achieve a qualifying time at any competition you can make a claim for the appropriate badge.  You just need to check the results on the online database where you'll see a letter B, S, G or P against the time designating Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum.  Note down the event date, stroke, distance and of course the time achieved and then submit a claim to buy the badges or flashes to sew onto your club shirt.
