Swimming takes place in the school Swimming pool year-round. The focus for swimming, both as part of the curriculum and as a club and competitive sport, is on safe participation in the water to competitive swimming within the South East Asian swimming circuit.
Young athletes are encouraged to try out for the Tiger Sharks swim teams, and squads train and compete on a regular basis. The coaches are focused on identifying talent and developing performance through highly knowledgeable programming and delivery of sessions. Though swimming is predominantly an individual sport, we work hard to instil the same positive attitudes we do across all sports which value high levels of respect, commitment, determination and teamwork.
The Tiger Sharks are developing a strong reputation within the Shanghai Swimming League (SSL), with some fantastic individual performances from our squad members.
Our swimmers train regularly each week after school with additional early morning and weekend sessions available. These additional squad sessions are aimed at those competing within the Tiger Sharks swim team and offer invaluable full-hour sessions with the focus not only based on technique but also on developing the swimmers’ interpersonal skills in a sports environment and learning how to become a champion physically and mentally. The aim is to create a limitless environment whereby the swimmer can grow as much as their potential allows. By creating this ‘sky’s the limit’ concept, the swimmer can take these valuable skills and positive personality traits to not only competitive swimming but any chosen sport and into their non-sporting lives.
