Learn to Swim

Overview

Discovery

18 months to 6 years

In the discovery phase, learners will be taught that water has its rules and acquiring the fundamental water skills of buoyancy, balance and aquatic breathing will enable them to have fun safely in this environment.

Toddler (18 months to 36 months)


This is the starting point where the little ones are introduce to the water environment. Teaching them to be comfortable getting wet, keeping balance in water, safe entries and exits, going underwater, staying afloat and swimming to safety.


Preparatory (3 years to 4 years)


This is the stage where the confident 3 to 4 years old continue to practice their fundamental water skills. Refining their gross motor skills to propel themselves in the water and to safety efficiently.

Beginner (4 years to 6 years)


This is the stage where beginner will learn all the fundamental water skills to be water confident and water safe.


Learning Outcomes:

  1. Floating independently.

  2. Blow bubbles. (Nose & mouth)

  3. Bobbing.

  4. Basic propulsion.

Kicker

6 years onwards

In the kicker phase, learners will learn the proper technique of using their legs and hands to generate propulsion.

Elementary


This is the stage where a confident beginner will learn the fundamental swimming skills to be ready for stroke learning.


Learning Outcomes:

  1. Streamlining with propulsion.

  2. Propulsion over a short distance. (Front & Back)

  3. Gross arm movements.

  4. Sculling.

Strokes School

In this phase, learners will learn all the swimming strokes as they progress through each stroke school. We understand that every child learns and develops at a different rate; therefore we celebrate each child’s achievement milestones before their promotion to the next school.


In each stroke school, there are 2 achievements milestones (neuromuscular strength and stroke technique) that will be used to track and chart each child’s progress.

School 1: Front Crawl

This is the start of the learner’s stroke learning journey. Front crawl stroke developments are taught with our proprietary pedagogy.


Learning Outcomes:

  • Front and Back propulsion over a prescribe distance. (with/without support)

  • 25m Front crawl swim. (with breathing)

  • Streamline push off.

School 2: Backstroke

The second stage of our stroke school program. Continual core muscle strengthening is further build upon to assist the learners’ with it skill development.


Learning Outcomes:

  • Back start from wall (Streamline)

  • Front & Back propulsion over the prescribe distances.

  • Front Crawl 50m.

  • Backstroke 25m.

  • Streamline push off on back.


School 3: Breaststroke

The third stage of our stroke school program. Conditioning of the breaststroke arm and leg movement is the key to development of this stroke.


Learning Outcomes:

  • Front & Back propulsion over a longer prescribes distances.

  • Front Crawl 50m.

  • Backstroke 25m.

  • Breaststroke 25m.


School 4: Butterfly

The last stage of our stroke school program. The learners will achieved the necessary foundational core muscular strength and swim skills to aid them in their butterfly stroke development.


Learning Outcomes:

  • Front & Back propulsion over a longer prescribes distances.

  • Front Crawl 100m.

  • Backstroke 50m.

  • Breaststroke 50m.

  • Butterfly 25m. (with aid & coordination timing)
