With the FAQ below, we can address some concerns from parents who are anxious about their child’s progress.
When your child is ready for Stage 1, we will present him a Stage 2 cap. If you look closely, it states that he/she is “Training for Stage 2”. This applies for all levels. If your child is ready for Stage 6 Gold, he will get a Red cap instead.
The average progress is 9 months according to our SwimSafer 1.0 period. For SwimSafer 2.0, we do not have an average yet.
You can ask your child as the coach will usually tell him/her where they need improvement. From our experience, your child will usually not convey the message to you. If you want to know what your child is weak at, please ask his/her coach directly during lessons and they will let you know.
In SwimSafer 1.0 syllabus, SwimSafter Stage 1 & 2 were very simple therefore we moved directly to Stage 3.
With the improvement in Syllabus requirement, we no longer need to skip Stage 1 & 2 anymore.
Stage 1 & 2 will take less than 30mins.
Stage 3 & 4 will take approximately 30mins.
Stage 5 & 6 will take approximately 60mins.
This test is optional, and will not affect the progress of your child. Our coach conduct regular assessment of our students and upgrade their Swim Cap when they meet the skill requirement. This is considered an internal grading and no certificate will be given.
If your child is ready for any test, you will see a “Book” button in the “Progress” menu.
