Skills and Distance Badges - 24th June & 1st July

posted 7 May 2012, 13:07 by Luke Vanhegan
Is your kids' swimming getting better?  The answer is probably 'Yes!' but don't you want to know how much?  Well, you and your kids can find out at the end of June when the club will be testing for Skills badges on Sunday 24th June (08:00 to 10:00) and for Distance badges on Sunday 1st July.

You should know the procedure by now:  make sure you sign up for the skills level or distance that you want to go for, and make sure you arrive on the right Saturday at 8am.  If you're unsure about what level or distance to put your child in for, please speak to your child's teacher.

We had some great distances swum last time, with some children swimming over a mile!  We also had children gaining not one, but two skills badges on the same morning.  Great achievements!

Remember that every successful swimmer will get a badge and a certificate, to mark their achievement, but these must be paid for before they can be ordered.  How much do they cost?  The bargain price of £3 for each award (i.e. £3 pays for the badge and the certificate - just to be completely clear!).

Hope to see you there on either Sunday, and don't forget to sign up at the door on Saturdays or Tuesdays.
