Get Waterwise with YMCA & Plunket


Half price swim lessons for Plunket clients

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

The swimming lessons are available Mondays to Fridays between 9am and 3pm at four YMCA managed aquatic centres: Onehunga War Memorial Pool, Lagoon Pool and Leisure Centre (Panmure), Glen Innes Pool and Leisure Centre and 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.” 

Parents can sign-up to the half-price swim lessons by enquiring online or calling 0800 336 886.

Terms and conditions: Baby and Preschool clients only (ages 3 months to 5 years), off peak times (Monday-Friday 9am-3pm), where space available, full YMCA Swim School conditions apply.
