Since January this year, swimsafer 2.0 kicks in for all the MOE school swimming projects. The private coaches and private swim schools could still proceed with the old swimsafer 1.0 until 15 April 2018. Since then, the transistion of swimsafer 2.0 came into effect in Singapore.
Swimming without goggles, side strokes, survival breaststroke (swimming breaststroke with head above water), dolphin kick and fly are some of the skills for swimsafer 2.0. All the rope throw rescue are removed completely.
Most of the Coaches Feedback gathered that thru the months of doing swimming lessons with the kids, have agreed that backstrokes was their weakest stroke followed by freestyle and then breaststroke.
With the current swimsafer 2.0, students will be able to improve their technique in order to swim and hit their required timing. Nothing is more important than having a good stroke technique which will eventually swim faster without the need of so much effort. As the common saying goes for swimming, “As your stroke technique improves, the speed naturally come.”
At AQZOG Swim School, we not only focus on their strokes technique, we also focus on their water survival skills and other aquatic competency as well as competitive swimming training. We are flexible in our swim training so that the kids can get more exposure on other aquatic skills.
