Swimmers badge is a staged activity badge, so you'll be able to work at a level that you feel comfortable. You tell us how far you think you can swim and how confident you feel in the water and we'll help you achieve the badge and push yourself to the next level. You can go up to stage 5 if you push hard enough.
