Once swimmers have completed the Learn to Swim programme they will then start to work towards gaining their Artistic Swimming Grades.
Swim England currently runs a three-strand award system for athletes; Figure Grades, Routine Grades and Land Grades. Details of the grades can be found here.
As you progress as a Artistic swimmer you will need to have your Artistic grades tested before you can enter certain competitions.
Assessments are completed externally and regional assessment days are held throughout the year.
