Pre-teen (11-12)


As swimmers get a little older, they will be introduced to some higher distances of events whilst maintaining the relaxed and informal environment. It’s about the joy of racing and competing against other athletes.

These competitions will continue the development of skills and understanding for swimmers and parents alike through more race starts. The focus is on fun and enjoyment of personal improvement over winning, promoted by the knowledge of results, and social engagement.

Check out the Event Calendar to find your next competition.

We also have a national Bio Island Junior Excellence recognition scheme for swimmers at this age.
