50% off swimming lessons for Plunket children

YMCA Auckland Swim Schools have partnered with Plunket Auckland to offer half-priced swimming lessons to children aged 3 months to 5 years. 

YMCA delivers swimming lessons that teach families more than just how to swim. We teach techniques for how to be safe in and around water. This includes backyard pools, public pools and beaches. 

Half-price swimming lessons are available Monday to Friday between 9am and 3pm at our four aquatic centres: 

  • Onehunga War Memorial Pool
  • Lagoon Pool and Leisure Centre (Panmure)
  • Glen Innes Pool and Leisure Centre 
  • Cameron Pool and Leisure Centre (Mt Roskill). 

YMCA Swim School manager Karla McCaughan says learning water safety at a young age provides vital skills for children. “Parents are also encouraged to be part of the lessons and learn about what they can do to keep children safe around water.” 

Register for Plunket swimming lessons by enquiring online or contact your local swim school for more information.
