Established in 1998, SPEEDISWIM has provided various swimming and water safety courses to the General Public and Schools (inclusive of Pre-schools) to keep the community safe with swimming and water survival skills.
Under the leadership of founder Philip Lee, Speediswim has established its credible brand name over the past 34 years. With the passion to groom aquatic sports in Singapore, Philip had built the extension of its core business of learn to swim, venturing into competitive swimming, water polo, and artistic swimming since 2005.
To date, Speediswim has remarkably groomed the most national artistic swimmers in Singapore, and in 2014, Philip was elected as the vice-president of synchronised swimming (now known as artistic swimming). In 2017, when Philip met with a significant restructuring of his business, he chose to step down from the post after winning the first-ever gold medal in the sport in the 2015 SEA Games and achieving a medal haul in the 2017 SEA Games.
SSA president Lee Kok Choy paid tribute to Lee, saying:
"Singapore Synchronised Swimming has grown tremendously under Philip's charge, from winning a first-ever gold medal in the sport in the 2015 SEA Games to achieving a record medal haul at the 2017 SEA Games."

With the business setback in 2017, Philip has rebuilt SPEEDISWIM over the past five years. In 2021, we survived the pandemic, and we grew stronger and bigger. Currently, we are standing strong with three venues, offering a new mix of programmes and new teaching methodologies. We have a stronger team of coaches, a more diversified outlook in our business, and most importantly, a 21st century approach to building a partnership with our swimmers and parents.
