Complete Swimmer Award (CSA) Program

Our teachings are to nurture and train water-safety skills and habits, while teaching children to swim intelligently and gracefully.

This 10 modules course is designed for children age 4 years and above to be taught in the skills of water-safety and the art of swimming independently. Classes are taught in groups of no more than 7 with a permanent swim teacher attached to the same class through out the module. From modules 4 and above, classes would be extended from 1.0 hr to 1.5 hr, inclusive of weekly run programs.

Learning to swim is not just about staying afloat and moving aimlessly forward in the water. We believe in a dynamic program that nurtures an interest in the child for this sport of swimming while keeping fit, meeting new friends and most importantly, learn of the many water-safety skills for the ability to swim independently with grace and efficiency.

Our program aims to stretch a child in his or her ability, while giving attention to each unique child that learns differently. Our years of records have shown the many successes that we have achieved with the children; and still doing today.
