ASA Awards

ASA Competitive Start Award

The ASA Competitive Start Award teaches safe racing starts into shallow water from a starting block, as well as a variety of starting techniques. We offer regular training so that swimmers can achieve this award and be able to use the starting blocks during competitions.

ASA Competitive Swimming Performance Badge Awards

The ASA performance badges are a great way for swimmers to mark their improvement and to aim higher. There are 4 levels of achievement – bronze, silver, gold and platinum which are split into sprint (25m, 50m and 100m,) middle distance (200m and 400m) and distance (800m+).

Below are the times that need to be achieved. Eligibility can be checked via the Results tab on this website. Times can be gained at competition or organised time trials. For each level, times can be achieved in any of the distances in any combination. So, for example if you achieve the 25m freestyle bronze sprint time, you can collect the flash. No more flashes are required when the swimmers also achieves the 50m or 100m freestyle bronze sprint times. Please order badges through the club shop.

Badges can be sewn onto your t-bag or a special towel as photoshown.
