There are 12 National Swim Awards in total, two for each of the six Development Phases of the National Plan for Teaching Swimming (1997 edition). In order to provide the opportunity to develop a wide range of skills, swimmers should be taught all ten of the tasks relevant to each award, but are only required to pass eight. Water confidence, continuous assessment and effective stroke technique are integral parts of achieving this range of awards.
