Swimming Lessons In Singapore

Swimming lessons can be a daunting experience for many beginners whom just started learning to swim. The aquatic programme covers topics such as breath control, maneuvering in the water, as well as basic self-help survival techniques. In this aquatic journey, learners will learn to build up confidence to submerge their face underwater through various water conditioning techniques.

Part of the process will also allow learners to explore the freedom of buoyancy, allowing them to and explore manoeuvring ability in water. This will be accomplished through muscle coordination and movement drills, which are extrinsic and requires guidance. As such, it is important to find a trusted swim school and an experienced instructor team to plan and conduct these lessons. In the long run, swimming lessons are not just an ordinary enrichment acitivity, it can be a healthy lifelong pursuit and the gateway to a world of aquatic activities!

Our Teaching Syllabus

The backbone of every swim school lies in its curriculum, founded upon the principles of its teaching philosophies, together with a sound, and progressive teaching syllabus. At Aquatics In Motion, we believe and commit our teaching practices to the key areas of progression of skills, and the well-being of the learner.

In the critical aspects of personal water safety and swimming strokes know-how, the children’s multi-stage swim programme delivers the necessary broader exposure of swimming essential skills, in a single, complete approach for swim learning.

Our Water Safety Focus

In 2007, the National Water Safety Council (NWSC) was tasked by the Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports (MCYS) to oversee water safety matters in Singapore. It was then, the initiative of the SwimSafer Curriculum was set up to be the national water safety programme in July 2010. This certification programme consists of progressive stages in learning and evaluations.

The programme was later reviewed in 2016 to 2017. Like its predecessor, the new SwimSafer 2.0 is an enhanced version with revised syllabus and assessments to broaden the knowledge of water safety and challenge the abilities of the children’s swim skills.

Our Swim Schools Comitment

Being an affiliated member of Singapore Swimming Association (SSA), with registered coaches with Sport Singapore and ActiveSG through the National Registry of Coaches (NROC), Aquatics In Motion’s goal is to help uphold and raise the swimming proficiency and the level of water-safety standards in Singapore.

In addition to local affiliations, our swim school also seeks to bring in best practices drawn from active participation and affiliation to leading international swim teaching organisations such as the Australian Swim Schools Association and the International Swim Schools Association. We take pride in providing trauma-free infant swim programmes that are founded upon emotional success leading skill improvements.

What Makes Our Lessons Different?

What We Will Teach?

Swimming is a life skill which no one can take it away from you. As the saying goes: ‘Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.’

Here at our swim school, we focus on teaching the important skills that can help you and your child enjoy your next holiday trip!

Overcoming water-phobia, developing water safety knowledge and improving survival skills are some of the things that we will focus on during lessons.

Start Swimming Early!

Research conducted by Griffith University, Australia (view published paper here) on 7000 children below the age of 5, suggests that exposing them to early water familiarisation and exploration shows improvement in their physical development. They also demonstrated better social interaction skills when placed in group classes.

By starting your child early with us in our baby and toddler swimming programme, your little ones are able to be acquainted with water much earlier, which gives them a head start in their overall cognitive development.

Difference Between Group & Private Swim Classes

The key difference between private and group swim classes is that private classes provide more focused attention and aids in solving specific learning challenges faced by the learners quickly. While group classes on the other hand promotes social interaction and competitive mindset amongst peers during learning.

Private Swimming Lessons

Private swimming lessons on the other hand, can be conducted in both a public pool or a private condominium pool. So long as the coach holds a current usage permit license issued by Sport Singapore that allows him/her to conduct lessons in a public swimming complex.

Group Swimming Lessons

Group swimming lessons are mostly conducted in public swimming pools as anyone is allowed to use the facility when they purchase an entry ticket. Unlike swimming lessons in a private residential condominium, where the pool is permitted for residents use only. Thus its more challenging to form big group classes in a condominium.

Lesson Fees & Rates

Swim lesson fees are priced in variance to the time duration and nature of the swim class types. Private individual lessons may cost between $60 to $80, depending on the experience and specialisation of the swim coach.

Group classes in public pools are around $17.50 to $22.50 per student per lesson, while a smaller group classes of just 2 to 5 students ranges from $25 to $45 per student per lesson

*Note that the per lesson cost serves only as a point of reference for ease of calculation, all fees are to be paid in advance ahead for a term, which is typically two months per term.

Can’t recommend Coach Justin enough! He has been teaching my first kid since he was 2 and my second one since he was 6 months. Both of them are now very comfortable and confident in the water. An extremely patient coach who deals well with children of all ages!

Coach Justin is very patient with my daughter and has successfully helped my daughter overcome her fear of water. My daughter has progressed a lot under Coach Justin and has learned a lot under him. She loves her Swimming lessons so much that she looks forward to them weekly with her good friend. Thank you, Justin!

We would recommend Justin to any adult who wants to learn how to swim. When you see the dedication and level of perfection that Justin demands you know you are getting taught the proper way. With Justin you are learning everything precisely. It simply not just about swimming but swimming correctly, confidently and with precision. For as long as we can remember we were afraid of water and the depth. Today with Justin’s lessons and guidance our confidence is growing.

A skillful and caring swimming coach. My two girls, start their lessons with Coach Justin when they were in N2 and K2. Both of them are now able to swim confidently in water and always looking forward to their swimming lesson! ????
