Swimming CCA

At the Swimming CCA, Students will learn swimming and motor skills under the guidance of professional coaches.

They will also pick up vital skills such as

– competitive strokes
– cardio-muscular endurance
– water endurance

In addition, they would develop necessary socio-emotional skills such as teamwork, discipline and character development.

There are two tracks in the CPASS Swimming team, namely the non-competitive and competitive team.

Non-Competitive Track

Our non-competitive focuses on achieving water confidence, swimming independently, and physical fitness.

Competitive Track

Our competitive swimmers would be trained to possibly represent our school in local swimming competitions organised by the Singapore Disability Sports Council (SDSC).

For instance, in 2015, our students participated in the National Special Schools Swimming Championship, as well as the SPH National Para Swimming Championships.
