The Happy Laps program is especially tailored for adult non-swimmers who would like to embark on their swim journey. It is a simplified approach to learn how to move through water easily, and is the only guaranteed program in Singapore to teach you to swim 25m of breast stroke independently by the end of the course.
Regardless of age or your experience in water, our experienced coaches will guide you through each easy-to-digest step in order for you to acquire water confidence, overcome anxiety and achieve mastery and enjoyment in your swim.
We have designed our Happy Laps program to be a two-part course, with a separate focus on different strokes and level of difficulty. In Happy Laps I, students will acquire basic water confidence, foundation techniques as well with our star guarantee to swim 25 m of breast stroke independently by the end of the program.
Upon graduation from Happy Laps I, students can move on to Happy Laps II where they engage in more advanced topics like water survival skills, longer distance swim and open water swim.

"If you don't know how to swim, you must give this program a try because it works. It gives you confidence, and you want to learn more and do more."
"I've been trying to learn to swim for years and this is actually my 4th attempt. Coach Fish Tang, he's very experienced even with adult non-swimmers and has a flair for explaining things. When I first started, I felt very comfortable but I wasn't sure if I could make it because I just couldn't get the drills. But after the 4th lesson, a miracle happened; I somehow put everything together and I could swim across the short end of the pool. And by my 5th lesson, I could swim 50m!"
"The program is very well-crafted. The coaches are very good; they look after you and they ensure that you succeed. So I'm really very happy to pass Happy Laps and receive my certificate today."
