Learn to swim

At Marsden Swim School, children of all ages learn how to swim based on AUSTSWIM principles and practices. Our program promotes learning in an atmosphere of fun, positive feedback, and engaging interactions.

  • The coaches in our Learn to Swim program are AUSTSWIM-certified instructors. They are pros in teaching proper techniques in swimming and water safety.
  • A class only accommodates up to five swimmers, so each one receives individual attention as they learn swimming in Singapore. Semi-private or individual classes are available for those with special swim class needs.
  • Swimming lessons for kids include guided exercises that teach water buoyancy and movements like rotation, gliding, propulsion with the arms and legs, diving, and kickboard work.
    Once equipped with the basics, students proceed to learn freestyle swimming, plus the four types of stroke: butterfly, sidestroke, backstroke, and breaststroke.

Stroke development

Students in this program advance their swimming skills by performing various strokes over longer distances. The technique-based approach of this program complements competitive swimming, too.

  • This program is suitable for swimmers who demonstrate competency in 10- to 15-metre swimming in all four fundamental strokes, survival sidestroke and backstroke, and poolside diving.
  • The other half of the program introduces students to competitive starts, turns, and finishes.

Swim squads

Swim squad is the final program in our swim class lineup that organises regular swim meets, giving swimmers the chance to improve their skills continually in a culture of competitive fun.

Headed by Coach Arnaud D’enfert and Coach Sam Jackson, swim squads fall into three categories.

  • Junior Swim Squad

    Junior Swim Squad students engage in 45-minute trainings where young team members swim greater distances to make them faster and stronger swimmers.

  • Senior Swim Squad

    Swimmers in the Senior Swim Squad train in 1-hour-long sessions with other participants of the same age range to inspire them to be the best in that division.
