CPAS

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.

Objectives
  • Educate students on the importance of water safety
  • Equip students with essential skills for swimming and survival
  • Develop confidence and independence in the swimming pool
  • Learn general and deep-end water safety (Swim Safer Stage 1)
Criteria

Students should:

  • Not have a history of epilepsy (fits)
  • Be able to follow verbal instructions independently

Short-listed students would go through a trial session, where they would be assessed by our swimming coaches on their confidence, basic strokes, endurance and stamina.
