Syllabus for badges
This list is a guideline and where possible we keep to this sequence. The skills are balanced, yet we are aware that all swimmers develop at different stages; so teachers have the option to make decisions in the best interests of their swimmers and some badges may not be completed — this is to enable swimmers to move through the syllabus steadily. The Badges in BOLD are the benchmark badges.
