Swimming is an essential life skill, especially for Singaporeans who live on an island. Chances are also high that any soldier in operation will see some time in the water. To ensure that our soldiers are able to manage this, we train our soldiers to be water-confident. We build up their stamina through aqua jogging training. By correcting their technique with practice, they stay afloat better and improve their overall physical fitness at the same time.
This swimming training not only helps to overcome any obstacle in life. The recruits will also use these swimming skills out in the field as they have to cross bodies of water while keeping their rifles dry.
