Stage 7 to 10 (Master Level)

Students at this stage will be trained on 4 different strokes- Breaststroke, Front Crawl, Backstroke, Butterfly. Training beyond stage 6 will be focused on skills such as speed focusing, discipline, stamina, distance-covering and endurance training.
These master competitive levels (Gold star) will be stages 7 to 10 of our Singapore Swim School syllabus.
Students will be trained to be lifeguard and swim coach qualified upon completed these master levels.
Students who have completed stage 10 are strongly encouraged to join our Lifesaving123 and BM courses. Upon completion of these lifesaving courses, students will be certified as a qualified Lifeguard.
