Artistic Swimming Grades are an integral part of the synchro journey. Swim England Artistic Swimming run a three-strand award system for athletes; Figure Grades, Routine Grades, and Land Grades.

As you progress as an artistic swimmer you will need to have your artistic swimming grades tested before you can enter certain competitions. 
 

Figure Grades

There are six figures grades that provide an increasing test of ability for athletes on their age group figures.

These grades support swimmer long term athlete development (LTAD) and ensure each athlete performs to their very best standard before moving to their next grade.

 

Each grade has three levels (gold, silver, and bronze) so all athletes have the ability to perfect their figures before moving to the next grade.
