Our Swimming Programmes - Club Venues
You can join our swimming programmes at the Hollandse Club and Swiss Club from the age of 6 months and progress and your own pace. Both clubs follow the aquaDucks swimming programme. However, at the Hollandse Club, we teach the Dutch ABC (Learn to Swim) programme. Besides our renown Babies & Toddlers, Preschool and Learn to Swim programmes, we also provide Competitive Training, Adults classes and (senior) aquaFit training.
The unique aquaDucks programme is a blend of the best European, American and Australian teaching techniques customised to the specific needs of the Singaporean weather conditions and environment.
Goal Of Programme
Water safety and fun come first in our Babies & Toddlers and Preschool swimming programmes. Our students learn survival skills from a very young age to be independent and safe in the water.
The swim coaches encourage students to float independently and swim back to the wall for their safety under the supervision of their parent or caregiver. Plus, we do not use any flotation devices during the lessons.
In our Learn to Swim programme, students learn to master all strokes with the right techniques and build up stamina. Before you know it, your child will swim 25 metres of Freestyle.
Every child is unique and can progress at their own pace. We ensure that each class is lots of fun to make students feel happy, safe and confident.
Learning Through Play
Play is the key to success for a child to become a safe and competent swimmer and is part and parcel of their learning process. While playing, children are unaware of the skills they are developing and achieving in the aquatic environment. In our Babies & Toddlers and Preschool classes, we sing songs and play while we practise personal survival and rough motor skills. In our Learn to Swim programme, we focus stroke technique and stamina building with fewer songs and play, but we always ensure our students have a giant smile on their faces during class.
