Q. Do you need to be a good swimmer?
Before you start artistic swimming, participants must have strong swimming skills. They should know their swim strokes, be able to tread water and be comfortable in deep water. Potential candidates should be at least six years old and must go through an assessment with the coach before they are accepted.
Q. Who should attend?
We cater classes to all levels and will perform an assessment on each child before they start to see what level they are at and what group to place them in. If they are complete beginners we will work on basic swimming fundamentals to get them to a level that is safe for them to join full artistic swimming classes.
Q. What do I wear for class?
Bring your swimming togs, hat and goggles.
Q. Is the sport dangerous
No. Artistic swimming is demanding, but our classes are supervised by the leading artistic swimming coach in Asia who has coached multiple national teams around the world. Every child will be assessed before beginning and put in class that is suited to their swimming level. As each child gets stronger they will be moved up levels appropriately
