At this level more emphasis is placed on the timing, coordination, position and breathing whilst further improving the main three strokes, along with the introduction of the butterfly stroke.

Also included are the retrieval of objects at depth and a greater understanding of the pool environment, along with the dangers, rules and the prevention of accidents. The distances that the children will have to perform the strokes will increase steadily. Children should be aiming to achieve their 25m, 50m and 100m Distance Awards at this level.
