Swimming Lessons For All Ages

Baby and toddler swimming lessons are normally conducted in the teaching pool with a pool depth of o.9m to 1.0m. This is because baby and toddler classes are parent-accompanied, and we require parents to be able to stand comfortably as they guide their little ones through with the activities during class. Swim toys such as floating rings/balls, pouring cups, water wheels and mats will also be used in class more vibrant and fun.

Baby Class

Toddler Class

Kids swimming lessons will take place in both the teaching pool and the 50m lap pool, depending on their competency level. Beginner groups will usually stick to the teaching pool as this allows the coach to ensure safety of the kids much easier. Only when the kids have progressed to intermediate and advanced levels, then will the lessons be moved to the competitive lap pool. It will also be at this point where the coach will start on the SwimSafer syllabus with the kids.

Children Class

Test Criteria

Adult and ladies only swimming lessons will normally be conducted in the teaching pool, as a handful of adults learners who just started out swimming are aquaphobic, even without them realising. Thus it is important for the coach to evaluate each individual learner before recommending a suitable lesson plan for them. For advanced adult learners, lessons can be moved to the 50m lap pool for stamina/endurance training and swim stroke corrections. Important survival skill such as treading water can also be taught in the deeper part (1.8m depth) of the lap pool.

Ladies Class

Swimming Equipment

Swim equipment can be useful in the pool for swimming lessons. However, some swimming equipment such as flippers, snorkels and arm paddles are not allowed in a public swimming complex pool as the equipment allows the swimmer to swim faster, thus it may pose danger to other leisure pool users.

Only swim aids such as kickboards, noodle floats and back floats are permitted for use during swimming lessons as these are equipments which swim coaches use to help ensure safety during classes. It is best to consult the life guards onsite or your respective swimming instructors regarding the use of permitted swim aids.
