Hi all !
My name is Darren and I am a part time swim instructor , I specialised in stroke corrections for all the main 4 strokes ( freestyle , breast stroke , backstroke and butterfly ) and adult beginners lessons.
I have been swimming since I was 8 and went competitive when I was 10, Later, I went on to challenge myself in open water swim and Masters swimming . I came out top 3 at OSIM triathlon on the swim leg (1.5km ) and held some Singapore Life saving meet Records .
Recently , I got 2nd in the Canada Provincial Masters swim meet in my favourite event, 50m breasstroke sprints.
In my swimming journey, I have also managed to teach many adults in Canada, US and Singapore , who have fear of water and now some of them are even swimming more than I do ! :)
I am really passionate about swimming and would like to share with you this beautiful sports ! If you see me swimming at the East Meadows Pool in Tanah Merah, feel free to say hi :)
