Lessons offered by Toa Payoh Swimming Complex 

Toa complex offers swimming lessons for everyone. In case you are looking for a professional swimming instructor then you have come to the right place. 

You can avail of any of our Swimming Lessons from a list of lessons. After the lessons at the Swimming Complex, you will be able to swim like a pro.  We have a team of well-qualified swimming coaches who know the art of making swimming easy for you. Furthermore, all our instructors hold professional licenses in the field of swimming. 

We provide swimming lessons for the following Categories:

  • Baby Swimming Lessons ( 6 to 24 Months Old)

If you are thinking that 6 months is too young to swim then you are wrong. Recent studies have shown that the human body starts developing muscular coordination at the mere age of 4 months. Thus, researchers now suggest that children who have been exposed to swimming lessons at early ages are better at developing muscular coordination than the ones who have not. Keeping this in view, we have developed special baby swimming lessons. These lessons aim at giving the babies an opportunity to splash and enjoy in the water while experienced instructors monitor them. Also, the babies are fully packed with airbags to avoid any mishap. Hence, the babies enjoy to the fullest in the water while they develop and grow simultaneously. 

  • Kids Swimming Lessons

Similarly, separate swimming lessons are available for children. These sessions are held in controlled pools where trained and experienced instructors guide the children and teach them the basics of swimming. Furthermore, due to a large number of attending children, there is natural encouragement for slow learners. During the lessons, there are group sessions and individuals ones too. Instructors identify the area of improvement for the children. Further, the children are allowed to practice in their free time and then the instructors check them for perfection. It is an ideal place for you to send your kids and teach them swimming. We believe children who learn swimming at an early age go on to become wonderful swimmers later on. 

  • Adult Swimming Lessons

As we mentioned, the swimming complex has something for everyone. In this regard, the complex offers training sessions for adults. These lessons are developed keeping in view the level of understanding and the pace of growth each individual displays. While a lot of people think that swimming can only be learned at an early stage this is not true. The instructors who deal with the Adult swimming lessons are instructors who only deal with the adult learns. These instructors have a good track record of the number of adults who learned swimming along with them. Thus, this is not true that you cannot learn swimming at a later stage in life. In fact, you can master the art of swimming with the help of instructors. 

  • Private Swimming Lessons

For all the people who feel they can not learn in a group learning environment, private lessons are available. These private lessons cost higher than regular sessions.
