National Swimming Certificate Awards

SEAL, MARLIN, ORCA Certificates - 

The Benchmark for Swimming Awards
Children are naturally curious about water and are attracted to it for a wide variety of activities. Irish Water Safety, the statutory body established by govt to promote water safety in Ireland has developed this programme so that children are encouraged to enjoy aquatic activities by first learning to swim safely.

Ireland has some of the best aquatic environments in the world and Irish Water Safety is committed to developing programmes that set the standard necessary for everyone to enjoy these environments safely and enjoyably.

Parents and Guardians also benefit with the peace of mind that this programme is Government approved and results from over fifty years of research and development by hundreds of water safety experts. The programme offers a one-stop-shop to learning swimming skills in a safe and carefully planned sequence.

The Swimming Skills Series

The certification consists of a progression of fifteen stages. Children receive a personalised full-colour A4 certificate and (optional) woven colour badge upon completion of each stage. The test items for each stage can be read on pages 3, 4 and 5.

Once children complete the SEAL series, they progress to the Marlin series and on to the more advanced Orca series of competencies. There are five levels in each series and a total of 15 levels in all. This ensures that the child progresses at a steady measured and controlled level.

The priority is two-tiered - safety and fun. The child has fun being guided safely; the confidence instilled in the swimmer assures the parent or guardian and reduces the dropout rate of participants.
