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:
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.
50% off babies’ and pre-school swimming lessons pricing for children aged 3 months to 5 years old. Only valid for classes Monday to Friday 9am to 3pm. A minimum of one term (10 weeks of consecutive classes) need to be booked at the same time. Offer is subject to availability/capacity in classes. No further discounts apply when taking up the Plunket offer (e.g. multiple swimmer discounts). Available at the following centres only: Cameron Pools & Leisure Centre, Glen Innes Pool & Leisure Centre, Lagoon Pool & Leisure Centre and Onehunga War Memorial Pool. (Full YMCA Swim School conditions apply.)
