There are five figure and five routine grades available within UK artistic swimming and there are two assessment days for each held in Scotland each year where swimmers can be officially assessed. Swimmers may also attend assessment days in England.
Swimmers will be advised in advance if they have been selected to attend a grade assessment day.
All figure grades have splits elements so it is very important for all swimmers to be stretching at home so that they achieve flat splits as soon as possible.
