About SpeediSwim

We operate Speediswim Aquatic Centre with H.E.A.R.T.


Being one of the most established learn to swim schools in Singapore, SPEEDISWIM recognises the importance of swimming beyond the six strokes. Thus, SPEEDISWIM provides the platform for continuity in aquatic sports, namely competitive swimming, artistic swimming, water polo, and underwater hockey. The Young Talent Identification (YTI) program seeks to groom individuals from Learn-To-Play (LTP), Learn-To-Train (LTT). Eventually, the Train-To-Compete (TTC) targetting at our athletes representing the Club and potentially the National level.

Our Founder, Philip

Philip Lee, the Founding Director of SPEEDISWIM AQUATIC CENTRE, graduated with a Masters’ Degree in Business (Sports Management) from Deakin University. He is also equipped with good knowledge in International Sports Facility Management from MSAC (Melbourne Sports Aquatic Centre). He operates SPEEDISWIM in three private venues in Singapore, with a team of local and international swim teachers and coaches. 

With multiple credentials, Philip is a:

  • NROC (Senior Swim Coach) with Sports Singapore and the Singapore Swimming Association, 
  • Certified SwimSafer 2.0 Instructor and Assessor, 
  • Presenter of AUSTSWIM Swim Teacher certification course, and 
  • former Vice President of Singapore Swimming Association.

Along with his many certifications, with a great passion for the next generation and community, he leads his team to provide quality learning in delivering lessons and training.

Philip applies a deep understanding of sports organisation concepts, environment, and culture theory and practice in business. With these pearls of wisdom, he synthesizes a strategic sports business model for SPEEDISWIM to establish and sustain strong stakeholder relations for long-term partnerships. He has been the catalyst and trendsetter, developing many young athletes in competitive aquatic sports in SPEEDISWIM, with a strong desire to create a sporting Singapore.


SPEEDI Milestone

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.
