Little Heroes Awards 2019

Our annual nationwide search to find Ireland’s most inspiring young swimmers is now underway! We will be honouring babies and toddlers from across Ireland with our prestigious Little Heroes award for their amazing water related achievements.

Has swimming helped your child through health or medical issues? Do you know a little one who saved themselves or another child who got into trouble in the water?  Has your little one overcome a tough case of the wobbles to love swimming again?! Did swimming with your little one help overcome your fear of water?! Or did swimming help you overcome post-natal depression? Whatever your remarkable swimming or water-related story may be, we want to hear from you!

In 2018 we honoured eleven inspirational Irish Little Heroes at our annual awards ceremony where we welcomed mums, dads, aunties, uncles and grandparents from around the country. These amazing little people battled illness and adversity including premature birth, speech issues, reflux and have shown a lot of courage in their little lives so far. The awards were a truly moving experience for us all at Water Babies and we look forward to awarding the most inspiring young swimmers in 2019!

We are hoping to uncover your stories of how water and swimming has helped with your Little Heroes development or improved their lives and the lives of your family in some way!

To nominate a child for a Water Babies Little Heroes award, all you have to do is email your name, telephone number, baby’s name, the pool you swim at and your story (just a few lines is all that is needed!) to bubba@waterbabies.ie before 20th January.  Winners will receive a Little Heroes Award statuette and a fabulous goody bag (at our Little Heroes Awards ceremony in February in Dublin!).

What’s more, all entries received will also be entered into a draw to win 1 of 2 €50 Water Babies vouchers – so what are you waiting for?! Good luck! x
