FAQ for Swimming Lessons   

1. What if the weather is bad on swimming lesson day? 

You are always welcome to talk to your coach regarding the status of your class on days with inclement weather. However, if your instructor is coaching at the time you call, he or she may be unavailable to speak with you. In the case of thunder and lightning, swimming lessons will be postponed until it is safe to resume or may be substituted with an indoor lesson.  

2. Do I have a choice of male or female swimming instructors? 

Your comfort is important to us and for that reason you are free to choose the gender of your instructor to suit your preference. Female instructors are in high demand and may not be available to meet your schedule, though. If a female instructor is needed, see the Lady Swimming Lessons for rates and instructions. 

3. Are swim coaches required to be certified? 

All of our swimming instructors are certified by Singapore Sport Council and qualified to conduct SwimSafer programme. In addition, they meet all the requirements of the Singapore Swimming Teacher's Association. All of them meet the certifications required to be a life guard as well. The safety of our students and all visitors to our facilities are of utmost importance to us. 

4. What is the largest number of students allowable in a group lesson? 

Each level of classes has its own limit so we can better work with students. The adult group classes are limited to a maximum of 10 students per class group. The Kids Group classes are  limited to between eight and ten students.  

5. What should I bring to my swimming lesson? 

The basic equipment needed when you arrive for your first lesson will be swim gear, goggles and a float board. You may also need a swim cap. Other equipment may be required by your swimming instructor.   

6. Are there differences between private swimming lesson and group swimming lesson? 

Yes, there are significant differences between the two types of swimming lessons. With private swimming lessons, you get to choose the swimming location and the time. You also determine the make-up of the students which can be just you or a very small group of students you put together. In exchange we require a minimum of four lessons in a month. 

With group swimming lessons, we provide the location and set the schedule. Based on these, a student may join an existing group that suits their needs. Group swimming lessons may not be appropriate for students under 3 years of age. Group sessions are also available for adults.  

7. If my child cries at a swimming lesson, does it mean he/she is not ready for swimming? 

No, children may cry for a number of reasons that have little to do with swimming. They may be having a bad day, be adjusting to the new environment or facing some anxiety caused by being away from their parents crying is a normal reaction and it does not mean your child isn't ready for swimming lessons. With time, his/ her confidence will emerge and he/ she will relax enough to enjoy the wonderful experiences swimming will bring him/ her.    

8. Where are your swimming lessons usually conducted? 

We have the capability of providing swimming lessons anywhere on the island. Access to a pool is all we need you to provide for private lessons. Group lessons are held at one of many public pools such as Bukit Batok Swimming Complex. Other locations where we conduct group lessons include Woodlands Swimming Complex and the Tampines Swimming Complex. With an ever growing schedule, it is impossible to provide a set schedule. We suggest you contact us to find out more on the day, times and locations of our swimming lessons.  

9. How old should my child be to start swimming lessons? 

Even a child of 6 months old is able to learn to swim. Younger children are less fearful of water and are able to adapt quickly to their surroundings. Even your very young children are welcome to take swimming lessons with us. Our Infant classes may be to your liking. 

10. How long does it take to learn how to swim? 

The learning process varies from one student to the next. Those with natural abilities may learn more quickly than others. While those who fear the water may take longer. The pace at which you or your children learn is not important. What is important is gaining the confidence in your abilities that will allow you to enjoy this new experience and we can help you achieve that.  

11. Why are the infant and young toddler classes shorter than the other classes? 

As with all activities for young children, shorter classes are necessary to accommodate their shorter attention spans and the fatigue they experience more quickly than older students. If lessons persist past their tolerance level, they will not absorb what is being taught. Short, entertaining classes that are fun are more productive and educational for this age group than a longer class with longer duration.

12. My child has attended the Primary school swimming lesson, is that enough?

Most of the Primary school, only provides 10 hours of basic swimming lesson (SwimSafer Stage 1). It only covers very basic water confident and survival skill up to 10m or less. Thus, your child is strongly encouraged to continue swimming lesson up to at least Bronze stage, which is required by most Secondary Schools when your child needs to participate in water sports like canoeing, sailing windsurfing or even dragon boating.
