SwimSafer Stage 7
SwimSafer Open Water
SwimSafer Open Water is a separate open water module that was introduced as an entry requirement for water sports entrants on 25th July 2011. Students who have completed minimum SwimSafer Bronze Stage can look forward to taking part in the open water course before venturing into open water sports. This program will include a in-class 500m Special Star Distance Swimming Medal Award. Students are to swim non-stop in the open water with any preferred stroke with no timing.
You will be happy to know that we are also among the very few in Singapore to offer this especially rare openwater course under the SwimSafer program in which less than 3% of Singapore instructors are qualified to teach.
