Octonauts Series

The Octonauts series features six awards that have been designed by STA to keep learners ages 2 to 7 years old, of all swimming levels, motivated at any stage of their aquatic development.

These awards focus on the most popular Octonauts characters, including Captain Barnacles and Kwazii, with each award centring around the character’s individual personalities. Teachers can use them multiple times to reward children for specific single achievements and milestones.

As a standalone swimming awards programme, the Octonauts certificates and badges can be used to support all learn to swim programmes, not just STA’s.
