SWIMMING LESSONS FOR KIDS
The most important aspect of swimming for kids is confidence building. The children will first be introduced to a variety of basic exercises such as rhythmic breathing, breath controlling, floating and gliding. Then they will move into the stroke phase where they will learn how to kick, pull and finally coordinate the entire stroke.
The first stroke they will learn is the breaststroke because it is easier for them to master. Also, the breaststroke will facilitate the learning of treading water at a later stage. Next, they will start learning the front crawl (also known as freestyle). We will encourage the child to work towards the Bronze award.
Children with fear of water (aquaphobia) may need individual coaching during the initial stages. Refer to fees structure lessons types.

SWIMMING LESSONS FOR ADULTS
There are primarily two types of adults swimming learners:
Non-swimmers will be taught the breaststroke first as they float better in that body position. They will be introduced to a range of basic activities such as floating (front and back), gliding and proper breathing techniques before they move on to the stroke proper. It will take about 12 lessons* for a non-swimmer to learn the breaststroke.
Swimmers who wants to improve their strokes
or learn new ones:
Swimmers in this category can look forward to learning new strokes such as the front crawl (also known as freestyle). They will also be corrected on their existing strokes so that they may swim more efficiently and effortlessly. This will definitely make swimming more enjoyable. Such training can also help those who are preparing for biathlons or triathlons.
(Equipment needed: kickboard and goggles)
For adults who prefer individual or small group swimming lessons, classes can be customized. Please refer to fees structure lessons types.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long will it take before I can swim?
It really depends on the individual. If the learner is a child, say below age 6, it will take a longer time for him/her to master the motor skills needed. Other factors to consider include whether the child has aqua phobia or any medical condition, all which may affect the learning pace of the child. However, it is always good to expose the child to the aquatic environment earlier so that the child can build up his/her confidence at an early stage. Adults generally take a shorter time to learn (4-6 mths).
What is recommedned if my child is afraid of water?
Individual lessons can provide your child constant attention and thus, helping him/her overcome anxiety and pick up skills at a faster pace. Thereafter, he/she can be incorporated into a group.
Can I swim if I am under medical treatment or if I am unwell?
If you are suffering from any medical condition, always seek advice from your doctor first before attending any swimming lessons. Star Swim Aquatic does not take responsibility for any accidents arising from undeclared pre-existing medical conditions.
What strokes will I learn?
You will learn all the four competitive strokes, namely breast stroke, front crawl, backstroke and butterfly. For children who are taking the survival swimming awards, they will learn the sidestroke and survival-back as well.
What kind of certification is provided?
For children, they will attempt the SwimSafer Awards, which consist of Stage 1, Stage 2, Stage 3, Stage 4 (Bronze), Stage 5 (Silver), Stage 6 (Gold) awards (conducted by a SwimSafer certified instructor).
For competent swimmers, they can take up aquatic lifesaving courses leading to qualified lifesaver certificates (conducted by Singapore Lifesaving Society).
Can I join lessons halfway through the month?
Yes you can if you are a new student and you will pay a pro-rated fee for that month.
What if my absent is due to medical condition?
If you are part of a group lesson, no fee wavier or make up lesson will be conducted.
If it rains, will lessons still go on?
Lesson will stop only if the pool authority (lifeguards) stops everyone from swimming. Lesson will go on if it is drizzling. Students are expected to turn up for lessons, unless the instructor calls to inform otherwise. See terms & conditions for more details.
