Competitions were rather disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic in 2020. At the end of the year we managed two sets of time trials, ‘Level X‘ with an ASA-approved minimum set of judges, and conventional time trials where we did not resource ASA-signed off officials. The results of both of these may be downloaded.
Both Level X and Time trial results mark swimmers against the ASA Competitive Swimming Speed Awards. Badges may be purchased to mark these awards.
The standards are based around ASA benchmark times for 12-13 year old swimmers.
The awards are split into Sprint (25m, 50m and 100m); Middle Distance (All 200m & 400m freestyle) and Distance (400m IM, All 800m and 1500m Freestyle).
The idea is to get the circular round badges for Sprint, Middle Distance and Distance in Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum and have each of the strokes under the badge. The round badges are for display purposes and the strips are earned according to the time. You only need to get one sprint time. E.g. If you get the time in 25m Free, then you get the badge and once you get it in 50m free you don’t get any further badges for the Sprint. You can get an idea of the badges / flashes from this image, borrowed from Wellingborough Swimming Club. If you would like to buy a badge + flash please contact Jeremy Dudley to place an order. The price is approximately £3 per badge and £1.50 per strip – we will confirm the latest prices from the ASA prior to committing to an order.
