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 Bukit Canberra, 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 structured swim classes, students are categorised according to their swimming abilities. From those who have yet to dip a toe in the water, to those already familiar with the sensation of submerging, all are welcomed into our beginner class. As each student’s skills enhance, they are subsequently transitioned into a class that better suits their level of proficiency.
Every student embarks on their swimming journey by learning the breaststroke, affectionately referred to in our academy as the ‘frog style’. Mastering this style can take some time, but our expert coaches and a range of innovative learning aids are available to make this process more comfortable and enjoyable.
To progress and be prepared for the SwimSafer Stage 1, students must demonstrate proficiency in the Survival Backstroke and Breaststroke, which includes the ability to cover a minimum distance of 10 meters. This foundational skill set forms the building blocks of their swimming journey, ensuring a confident, secure, and progressive learning experience.
The SwimSafer program is based on a set of six stages, each with its own set of skills and learning objectives. These stages are designed to help students develop a strong foundation in basic swimming skills, such as floating, gliding, and kicking, as well as more advanced techniques for competitive strokes such as front crawl, breaststroke and butterfly.
One of the key benefits of SwimSafer is that it provides a clear and structured path for students to follow as they progress through the different stages. This can help them to stay motivated and focused on their swimming goals, as they can see the progress they are making and the skills they are acquiring at each stage.
In addition, SwimSafer also emphasises water safety and provides students with the knowledge and skills they need to stay safe in and around water. This can help to reduce the risk of accidents and drowning, and can give students and their parents peace of mind when swimming.
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.
