Swimming is an extremely popular sport at BSM with the students having weekly swimming lessons within the school day. There are also 10 swimming squads that have training sessions every week to develop and improve stroke technique, increase fitness levels and prepare our students for competitions. Our squads are Development, Junior, Senior and Elite.
BSM Students have the opportunity to tryout for a squad that is appropriate to their swimming ability. Throughout the school year there are several Swim Meets that are hosted by BSM and other International Schools in Manila.
At the British School Manila we follow the water safety guidelines as outlined by the UK Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) and AUSTSWIM (Australia’s National Organisation for the Teaching of Swimming).
All our swim coaches have the ASCTA (Australian Swimming Coaches & Teachers Association) qualification.
