To bring you and your child the best experience, we have our Flagship classes, conducted by our own coaches.We currently have the Flagship Classes available only at Yishun and Sengkang Swimming Complex.
Best Experience Guaranteed!
In our Flagship Class, we make sure your child is well taken care of. We are aware that a swimming pool is a totally new environment for some kids and they are not yet comfortable. On top of them, they have to be left alone without being beside their parents.
With that in mind, we make sure that the child can learn at their own pace and enjoy themselves while too!
In our classes, we group students according to their skill level. Most students start without any swimming experience, while some are already comfortable with submerging in water. All students will still start from the beginner class, and will be moved to a suitable class when they improve.
Students start with learning breaststroke (we call it frog style), and they will take a while before getting the hang out of it. We have many learning aids to help students learn comfortably.
Once they start swimming on their own without stopping, our coach will assess if they are ready for deep pool training and start their SwimSafer journey.
The SwimSafer program is a very powerful guideline to introduce swimming to kids. SwimSafer is progressive and allows most kids to learn comfortably while enjoying their lessons. It is important to note that the first certificate our student will attain is the SwimSafer Stage 3.
When students come to the deep pool, they will train on their confidence and stamina. At the same time, they will be training on lie comfortably on their back, and start learning survival backstroke.
In order to start training for their SwimSafer Stage 3, student must be able to swim 25m survival backstroke and 25m frog style without stopping.
After achieving SwimSafer Stage 3, students will go on for their SwimSafer 4 (Bronze), 5 (Silver) and 6 (Gold). Under Singapore Swimming Academy, they are definitely strong swimmers with the ability to sprint through the whole pool by the time a student achieve SwimSafer Gold.
Singapore Swimming Proficiency Award (SSPA)
This award is what all students are training for, to get an official timing for their swimming at a set distance. During their swimming lessons, most students will start training for their timing at SwimSafer Silver on a weekly basis. By the time they get to SwimSafer Gold, swimming 50m below the timing is more than achievable. Most students are enthusiastic to break their own personal record.
In Singapore Swimming Academy, once the student pass SwimSafer Gold, they will change to a red swimming cap. Getting their Red Cap is a mark of a true swimmer.
FAQ on Flagship Classes
How often is the SwimSafer test conducted in the Flagship class?admin2018-05-15T18:24:25+08:00
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.
What age can my child join the Flagship classes?admin2018-02-27T17:42:24+08:00
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.
How long will my child learn to swim in the Flagship class?admin2018-02-27T17:43:15+08:00
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.
