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.
We usually organise a test once every 3 to 4 months. Please give this a miss and join the next test.
If your child is ready for any test, you will see a “Book” button in the “Progress” menu.
Read up here on clothing to wear for SwimSafer programme. The coach has been constantly reminding students to bring clothing in preparation for their test.
In brief, here is what to bring:
Stage 1, 2, 3 & 4 Bronze – T-shirt & shorts
Stage 5 Silver & Stage 6 Gold – T-shirt & long pants
Just the usual swimwear, cap, goggles and their clothing.
We have a proprietary system that allows us to assist instructors in organising the class and tracking the progress of our students. With this system, your fee can be paid online, so we do not have to handle cash at the pool.
With this system and structured training programme in place, we are able to take a shorter time to train every student, compared to the past.
Group classes taught by our in-house coaches. Only our flagship class offers a full structured programme ranging from beginner learn-to-swim classes to advanced lifesaving classes.
- Learn to swim (SwimSafer 2.0)
- Competitive (Singapore Swimming Proficiency Awards)
- Lifesaving course (SLSS)
Flagship class are only available at Yishun and Sengkang currently.
For our flagship group class, the minimum age to join is 6 years old (K2) for now. Let us know if your child is below 6 years old but more than 110cm tall. The coach has to assess if he/she can join.
Each child has different exceptional abilities and confidence level in water.
In our flagship class, it takes an average of 10 months for a 6 year old (K2) child to be able to do basic swimming at the deep pool unaided.
This is based on a weekly lesson where the child does not skip practice. Older children may take shorter time learning to swim, but that depends on each individual student.
For our Flagship class, we hold our test every Quarter. The dates generally fall on the 5th Saturday or Sunday of the month. The average progress for each level is nine months.
Students are constantly being assessed on their skill sets. Once your child is ready for a certain level, the coach will continue teaching your child the next level skills. Student progress is not solely based on certificates/awards achieved by the student.
This will depend on the age of your child.
A 5 year old child will take about 1 year to meet the requirements of Stage 1.
There are kids who take months to overcome the fear of water and it takes them a few months to adapt.
A 10 year old might take 3 months to meet that requirement.
So, it’s best to ask the coach that is teaching him for a better understanding.
You can enrol your child if he is in K1.
