Swim England Distance Awards

At Diamond Swim Academy our swimmers work towards the Swim England Rainbow distance awards.

The Swim England Rainbow Distance Awards are designed to complement the 10 stages of the Swim England Learn to Swim Framework which DSA follow. The distances range from 5m – 5000m and can be attempted when the swimmer is out of their aids.

Each term, the swimmers will attempted their rainbow awards in our distance week. We believe this helps keep our swimmers motivated while working through the individual Learn to Swim stages and also maintains a good standard of swimming throughout each stage.

Alongside the Rainbow distance awards, Diamond Swim Academy works with the Swim England Rainbow Stroke Awards.

The Swim England Rainbow Stroke Awards covers distances of between 5m and 100m for each of the four strokes. Front crawl, Backstroke, Breaststroke and Butterfly.

They not only offer swimmers a further challenge after they have attained the Swim England Rainbow distance awards, but again ensure the swimmers maintain correct stroke technique.
