Cost Guide from Kids to Adult Swimming Lessons Singapore

Adult swimming lessons Singapore

Learning to swim in Singapore is made easy with plenty of options available, including public swimming pools and private facilities like condos and country clubs. These places offer different pools for different skill levels, making them accessible to everyone. Adult swimming lessons Singapore cater to people of all ages, offering group sessions at public pools and personalized one-on-one instruction at private venues. With such a variety of options, learning to swim is convenient for anyone interested.

Now, let’s delve into the cost breakdown of adult swimming lessons in Singapore.

Types of Lessons

For some swimmers, having one-on-one lessons is better because it’s more personal, fits their schedule, and feels safer with all the attention on them. Group lessons are usually set up based on how old you are and how good you are at swimming. There are usually 2 to 10 swimmers in a group with one instructor.

If you want to become better at swimming and get certified, some schools teach you about staying safe in water, swimming in open areas, and how to compete in swimming.

Test Certification

SwimSafer

Many coaches and schools use the SwimSafer program. It has six levels of certification: SwimSafer stages 1, 2, and 3, then SwimSafer Bronze, Silver, and Gold certificates.
The tests usually cost between $20 and $50. The price can vary depending on the school and which level of the program you’re trying to pass.

Singapore Swimming Proficiency Awards

A great way to get an idea of competitive swimming is the Singapore Swimming Proficiency Awards (SSPA). But it’s not an actual competition, it’s made feel like one so you can get an overview of how it works before joining the actual one.

To be part of SSPA, you must have finished one of these programs:

SwimSafer Stage 1
Singapore Swimming Club Learn to Swim Program (SSC Learn to Swim Program)
National Survival Swimming Award (NASSA)
Singapore Aquatics Time Trial (SAQ Time Trial)
The SSC Learn to Swim Program and SAQ Time Trial are programs run by specific places, while NASSA is an older version of SwimSafer. For most people, getting the SwimSafer Stage 1 certification is the easiest way to qualify.

If you take part in SSPA, you can earn badges and certificates if you meet the requirements.

You don’t have to try the levels in order. For instance, If you’re older, you can decide to begin at level 4. To pass this stage, you need to swim 400 meters using the front crawl stroke in under 10 minutes and 40 seconds.

Each test costs $16.35. If you’re not a member of Singapore Aquatics, you also have to pay an annual registration fee of S$43.60. The tests usually happen at Our Tampines Hub Swimming Complex, so you’ll also need to pay the entrance fees.

Pool Expenses

At condos, you can use the pool for free because the costs are included in your maintenance fees, whether you swim or not. Plus, if you bring friends for group lessons, they can swim for free too.

At public pools, there’s an entrance fee. If a parent goes with their child, they have to pay otherwise they don’t swim. The entrance fee varies depending on the type of pool, where you’re from, and when you go.

Some swimming complexes have extra fun stuff like slides and water features, which makes the entrance fee higher than regular pools.

Equipment Cost

Some schools give out goggles, swim caps, and a bag for free when you sign up, which is included in the registration fee. But besides regular swimwear, you might need other stuff too. Like, some lessons might need you to have a kickboard, but even if they don’t, it’s a good idea for parents to think about getting buoyancy aids for new swimmers. And if you’re more advanced, you might need fins, pull buoys, and paddles for training exercises.
