Dare to Dream

Swim Schooling is the brainchild of Singapore’s first Olympic Gold Medalist, Joseph Schooling.

Learn from the Champion

Joseph Schooling’s unique achievement and experiences have shaped the teaching practices of the swim school, and are embraced and adopted by our experienced and well-trained swimming coaches.

Nurturing Environment

Our progressive teaching styles are encouraging, positive and above all, we seek to provide a peace of mind for parents with our safe environment that ensures the best possible learning for the children.

Progressive Learning

The school runs a unique 8-stage progressive programme that teaches children skills from water confidence, lifesaving skill to champion’s technique for competitive swimming.

Character Building

We have a unique GO JOJO! Awards system that celebrates and honours the young sparks who seek to better themselves, and motivate others for the better.

Low Children-to-Coach Ratio

We believe in deploying a lower children-to-coach ratio (4:1 for stages 1 to 5, 6:1 for stages 6 to 8), allowing plenty of personal interaction with the coach and lots of fun.
