For Lifesaving 1 > Lifesaving 2 > Lifesaving 3 > Bronze Medallion and CPR, what is the timeline we are looking at for a 14-15 yo competent swimmer? I checked out your website. Does it mean after 10 lessons, they will be ready to take Lifesaving 1? Thanks!
I presume you were looking at the crash course. The first crash course of 10 weeks will bring your child through Lifesaving 1, 2 and 3 certifications together. The 10th session is usually the test.

With regards to the timeline, if your child is able to pass all the tests on the first try, he will finish up to Bronze Medallion and CPR within 20 lessons. However, Bronze Medallion has a timed-component which requires the student to take off clothes, jump into the water and swim 50 metres, and save a victim and swim back the 50 metres, all within 3 minutes and 15 seconds. This will require lots of practice once the training for Bronze Medallion begins.

I personally took up lifesaving at 15 years old, and completed the higher awards (beyond Bronze Medallion and CPR) when I was 16. However, I really did swim a lot during that period to get my fitness up to standard.

The kolam Ayer community sports club just had their swim meet on Sunday.

Another swim meet you can look out for is Civil Service club meet. They held it in April this year if I am not wrong.

My daughter, 10 years old, is currently doing comp swimming in a private club. However, the competition this year is only 3 times.

Anyone knows if there are any swimming meet where we can register our kids to compete?

Thanks.

Hi Rata, some of my friends have kids with Coach Melvin at Bukit Batok Swimming Complex. I believe they are doing squad training though it's only developmental. Perhaps you could check it out? You can find their company's link on facebook under Swim Alliance.

Hope that helps.

Hi Rata,

Will you consider joining Team JCC at Jurong Country Club? They have a competitive team with an ex-Olympics China Coach coaching the squad there.

Contact Jurong Country Club S&R reception for a trial lesson today 67086285.

Thanks,
