TSR Syllabus 

The syllabus, consisting of 8 levels, is a unique and comprehensive curriculum designed by our team of experienced coaches - to mould any individual from a complete beginner to a competent swimmer.

 

Every lesson is personalized to each student’s pace and abilities where we not only want to teach the skills, but we want to cultivate the joy of swimming. To ensure the currency and relevance of our syllabus, our coaches regularly review and fine-tune its contents and pedagogies used to coach and engage our students. Furthermore, all our students are fully prepared for SwimSafer tests and certifications. 

Our coaches will be teaching and tracking student's progress based on this syllabus.

They will also be updating in the online system which parents will be able to log in

to to check their children's progress. 

TSR Tests & Certification

These are internal test and are conducted termly for all TSR students from Level 4 onwards.

The tests are an assessment and affirmation of our students' swimming progress. 

Being able to participate in the swim test alongside other students also gives them motivation to

achieve their next level and certification. 

Parents and students will be informed to attend their level test based on their progression. 

Certificates will be awarded when students pass their tests.

Levels 4-7 are categorised under

Swim Techniques.

At these 4 levels, students will be learning the 4 recognised swimming strokes - Frontcrawl, Breaststroke, Backstroke and Butterfly. The focus will be on swiming techniques, stroke correction and refinement and also skills sets which enables them to do competitive swimming as well as SwimSafer.
